Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24. Nov. 13 is the 263rd day of full-scale war. The Russian invasion forces initially tried to advance from the north, east and south, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine with artillery and air. Missile attacks throughout the country are still ongoing, and the enemy is still attacking civilian objects.

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

Currently, Russian forces have seized parts of Zaporizhzhya, Kherson, Luhansk, Donetsk, Mykolaiv and Kharkiv oblasts.

Ukraine’s army launched a counter-offensive in the south and east of Ukraine, striking Russian warehouses with ammunition and personnel, and succeeded in liberating almost the whole of Kharkiv and Mykolaiv oblasts.

After the successes of the Armed Forces on the battlefield, the Russian forces in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya oblasts arranged sham “referendums” on joining the Russian Federation, and on Sept. 30, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin claimed Russia had annexed the Ukrainian territories it had occupied.

A partial mobilization was announced in the Russian Federation on Sept. 21.
