Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24. March 27 is the 32nd day of the full-scale war Russia unleashed on Ukraine, although it refuses to recognize it as such, instead calling it a "special military operation in the Donbas."

Invading Russian troops have been trying to advance from the north, east and south, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine.

From the first days of the war, the most difficult situation has been observed in Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, Mariupol, and the outskirts of Kyiv.

The invaders are also trying to seize those territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions that were under the control of Ukraine before the invasion.
