Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24. Oct. 15 is the 234th 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, Russian forces concentrated on fighting for the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, which were under Ukrainian governmental control before the full-scale Russian invasion.

Kherson is the only provincial capital under Russian control. Invading Russian forces currently occupy parts of Kherson, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Mykolayiv, and Zaporizhzhya oblasts.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces has launched a counter-offensive in the south and east of Ukraine, striking at Russian ammunition depots and troop concentrations.

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.

The Ukrainian military has already liberated more than 8,000 square kilometers of territory.

After the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the battlefield, the occupying “authorities” in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhya oblasts held sham “referendums” on “accession” to Russia, and on Sept. 30, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of the captured Ukrainian territories.

On Sept. 21, a “partial mobilization” was declared in Russia.
