Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2023. Jan. 15 marks the 326th day of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. Invading Russian forces initially tried to advance from the north, east and south, attacking peaceful cities and towns throughout Ukraine. Civilian targets across Ukrainian cities remain one of the main targets of Russian air strikes, while areas along the Russian border are regularly shelled. Since October, the enemy has also been hitting Ukrainian cities with Iranian-made suicide drones.

During this time, the Kremlin has changed the goals of its war in Ukraine several times.

Parts of Zaporizhzhya, Kherson, Luhansk, Donetsk, Mykolayiv, and Kharkiv oblasts are currently occupied by Russian terrorists.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces launched counter-offensives in the south and east of Ukraine, striking at Russian ammunition depots and military personnel concentrations. They managed to liberate almost the whole of Kharkiv Oblast.

On Nov. 11, the Ukrainian military also liberated the city of Kherson and ousted the invaders from the right bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are also gradually liberating Luhansk Oblast.

Since October, Russian forces have attacked civilian infrastructure facilities across Ukraine, leaving its citizens without power, water and heating.
