Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24. July 20 is the 147th day of full-scale war. Russian forces initially 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 the 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 remains the only provincial capital under Russian control. Russian forces maintain their hold on parts of Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, and Kharkiv oblasts.

In some areas, Ukrainian troops are launching counteroffensives, and the Russian army is suffering losses.
