Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24. Jan. 6 marks the 317th 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, Russia 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.

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

Shortly after the beginning of the Kherson counter-offensive, the Ukrainian army launched another counter-offensive in Kharkiv Oblast in the north-east of the country. Most of the oblast was liberated from Russian occupation in just a few days.

On Nov. 11, the Ukrainian military also liberated Kherson and drove the occupying troops from the west bank of Kherson Oblast. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are also gradually liberating Luhansk Oblast.

After Russian troops fled Kherson, there was an upsurge in fighting in Donetsk Oblast.

Since October, the Russian military has targeted critical infrastructure facilities across Ukraine, depriving the population of power, water, and heating during winter.
