Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24. Sept. 6 is the 195th day of full-scale war. Russian invasion forces initially tried to advance from the north, east, and south, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine using artillery and airstrikes. Russian missile strikes throughout the country continue even now, as the invaders attack civilian objects.
During this time, the Kremlin changed the war goals in Ukraine several times. After the failed operation to seize Kyiv, its troops had to retreat from the territories of Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts, The Russian troops concentrated on fighting for those territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts that were under the control of Ukraine before the full-scale invasion.
The city of Kherson is the only regional center that was captured in the full-scale invasion and is now under the control of the Russian invaders. Parts of the Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Kharkiv oblasts were also captured.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine are launching a counteroffensive in the south of Ukraine and on other axes, striking at Russian ammunition depots and clusters of manpower.
