Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24. Dec. 21 marks the 301st 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 throughout Ukraine. Civilian targets across Ukrainian cities remain under sporadic Russian air strikes, while settlements along the Russian border are regularly shelled. Since October, the enemy has also been hitting Ukrainian cities with Iranian-made kamikaze drones.
During this time, the Kremlin has changed the war goals in Ukraine several times. After the failed operation to seize Kyiv, Russian troops retreated from Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Sumy oblasts to concentrate on fighting for the parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts that were under Ukrainian control before the full-scale invasion.
Invading Russian forces currently occupy parts of Kherson, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Zaporizhzhya oblasts.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces have launched a counter-offensive in the south and east of Ukraine, striking at Russian ammunition depots and manpower clusters.
