Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24. July 5 is the 132nd day of full-scale war. The invading forces tried to advance from the north, east, and south, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine using artillery and bombing them from the air.

During this time, the Kremlin has changed the goals of its war in Ukraine several times. After a failed operation to seize Kyiv and then the retreat of its troops from Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Sumy oblasts, the Kremlin concentrated on fighting to capture the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts that were under Ukrainian governmental control before the full-scale Russian invasion.

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 counter-attacking in some areas, and Russian troops are suffering large numbers of losses.
