Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24. June 30 is the 126th day of full-scale war. The invading forces initially tried to advance from the north, east and south, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine using artillery, and bombing them from the air.

After a series of defeats, the Kremlin has changed the goals of its war in Ukraine several times. Following its failed operation to seize Kyiv and then the retreat of its troops from Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Sumy oblasts, Russian forces concentrated on fighting for the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, two thirds of which were under Ukrainian governmental control before the full-scale Russian invasion.

Other than Luhansk and Donetsk, Kherson remains the only provincial capital under Russian control. Russian forces maintain their hold on parts of Zaporizhzhya, Kherson, and Kharkiv oblasts.

Ukrainian troops are counterattacking in some areas and Russian troops are comtinuing to suffer heavy losses.
