Russia began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022. In the first year of this major conflict, the Ukrainian defense forces defeated the Russian army in Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts, forcing it to retreat, and then successfully liberated almost the entirety of Kharkiv Oblast and the right-bank areas of the Kherson Oblast, including the city of Kherson.
In early June, the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a counter-offensive in southern and eastern Ukraine. This operation has resulted in the gradual liberation of previously occupied areas and the strengthening of Ukrainian positions along newly captured frontlines.
As part of the counter-offensive effort, Ukrainian military forces have retaken a total of over 192 square kilometers of territory in southern Ukraine and an additional 40 square kilometers in the Bakhmut area in eastern Donetsk Oblast.
