- task force UAVs: 9.

At 0500 on Feb. 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had decided to launch a "special military operation" in the Donbas following a request from the puppet authorities in the non-government-controlled Luhansk and Donetsk territories. In fact, Russian forces launched a full-scale invasion, though this is being concealed from the Russian public.

March 15 is the 20th day of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russia is advancing from the north, east and south, and is indiscriminately bombing urban centres and residential areas.

From the first days of the war, the situation has been most dire in Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, Mariupol, and in Kyiv and its outskirts.

The invaders are also trying to seize the government-controlled territories of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts.
