We have all gotten quite used to the fact that Ukrainian village names are anything but unique. More specifically: The link below suggests that the Bila Krynitsia currently fought for on the Kherson frontline (RUS claims conquest, UA claims having repelled the attack) isn’t the one in Kherson Oblast, displayed on your map, Jerome, but the one in Mykolaiv Oblast that sits just west of Davydyv Brid. Otherwise, the link mentions possible fighting for Tetyanivka,… Read more »

Apparently, Blahodatne has once again changed hands. Your maps had it as constantly UA-controlled, while ISW has recently coded it back to the Russian side. Might be prudent to just mark it as “contested” for the time being.

Hmmnope, T-62s already at the front lines lol. Should be yummy death traps once even the oldest common RPG warheads still around hit them.

cwDeici

Correction, they’re behind the frontlines. But Russia had 2100 functional tanks at the start, and they’ve lost a confirmed 700, plus unconfirmed losses, minus new tanks, so between 1/3 to 1/2 their modern tanks. Give this 2 more months at most and they’ll be forced to use the T-62s on the frontline, although perhaps we’ll start seeing a lot of T-62 corpses in July. By August there should be proper counter-offensives, and it’ll be interesting… Read more »

Zakhar

In the Forbes photo, we see two unmarked tanks. It’s all. T-62s are also in service with Ukraine, you can see about it on Wikipedia

Dolgan

are you sure for T62? Ukraine have à lot of T64.

Henry Whitworth

The fact that Jerome’s work here, for many weeks, has focused on micro movements on the map rather than any large scale movements bodes well for which side, do you think? The side that has been throwing all their resources into a massive offensive to grab and hold all of Donbas while encircling most of the best Ukrainian forces and destroying them. The side that needed to meet that offensive on a massive, hundreds mile… Read more »

Azog

Based on these inputs – impossible to say because: – both Ukrainian army and infrastracture also suffer losses. Very serious ones – higher speed of advance means higher losses for the attacker. Micro or macro movements – whatever works. – unclear what is meant by superior Western weapons. So far the West didn’t promise (and delivered) anything that Ukraine didn’t have already (and was apparently lost). Oh, Javelins, right.. If Ukraine can stand and fight… Read more »

This is rude, but whatever floats your boat man

Colin

Ruzzia can choose to end war and go home anytime they want.
Instead they are systematically destroying Ukraine.

Henry Whitworth

You just gave us the troll standard; “Well, hey, be reasonable, if Ukraine had just surrendered to Russia in February there wouldn’t be all this war.” And you included the threat of nuclear war. So, you calling me “rude” is the mildest of compliments you could give me. You can spin your inhuman garbage but some of us understand who you are.

Azog

In this case I suppose you returned the compliment.
Why are you referring to yourself as ‘us’? How many are you?

Zakhar

He has all the trolls who do not believe in the victory of the holy Ukraine. Why prove and justify something if you can just call your opponent a troll

Michał

Hi. When I open full map in new browser tab, the picture is from 98th day, not 102. Same situation is in 100th summary. Will be grateful if it could be repaired. Thanks for your job! Great work

Zakhar

Gaidai (head of the Ukrainian administration of the Luhansk region) confirmed that the Ukrainian army controls only the industrial zone area in Severodonetsk. All residential quarters are under the control of the Russian army. Earlier, the same thing was reported by Yuriy Butusov (Ukrainian journalist)

John

The amount of dislikes on your comment goes to show how people ignore facts and only judge through their opinions. Literally if you look at drone footage, and POV footage of troops from either end you can clearly see that Russian forces control the residential blocks. In fact there was a video today of Russian troops moving across the main street of Severodonetsk with no resistance, just driving along the main road across the town.… Read more »

So your videos and suppose proofs are not fake or propaganda (especially coming from a mastermind country like Russia in propaganda) but Ukraine news are? This goes to show exactly what you just said: “The amount of dislikes on your comment goes to show how people ignore facts and only judge through their opinions” And this is your opinion based on videos that can be as fake as Ukraine news, so who to believe? It’s… Read more »

If UA forces let RU ones move freely in residential areas right now & there, does that mean that they prioritize sparing civilians?

Needle

At Sievierodonetsk, the Ukrainian army was able to counterattack.  Artillery on the south bank of the river killed a lot of Russian troops.  Perhaps instead of sending large numbers of soliders into street battles, the Russians should have used anti-artillery radar to counter Ukrainian Accurate shelling .

Mr Zelensky’s recently visit to Lysychansk was indeed brave.  Certainly, the Russian major-general who led the attack himself and died seemed braver .

Zakhar

In Severodonetsk, the counterattack has already choked, this was confirmed by Ukrainian officials. Ukrainians rolled back to the industrial zone again

John

The counter attack failed fully. Russian forces are still at their previously held positions within the city.

Vita

https://deepstatemap.live/en#10/46.7874/32.6981 That doesn’t seem to be the case.

Piotr

Please add Komyshuvakha on the map. Great job with those updates!

Henry Whitworth

Hard to believe it could be happening this fast but does anyone suspect that the Russian offensive is kind of hitting its high water mark already? I mean, are they going forward in more places than backwards in others? And if they’re sending those poor guys to the assault in T-62s already, what the heck do they have behind this to push it further? I mean, Ukraine is just starting to roll out some fresh… Read more »

MeNeutral

this ”they are sendng T-62s in the batlle, they are running out of modern tanks” BS is not true, not only can you see in videos that they also have modern tanks send to batlle (like the T-80s), but T-62s are also not a bad tank for what their purpose is and let me tell you the purpose of these tanks, those tanks are mainly send to locations where there is not a lot of… Read more »

Exactly. People often forget that the US army still uses WW2 weaponry in battles within the middle east, these range mostly to guns and support fire rifles, but again as you stated, if it works, it works. Just because something becomes obsolete doesn’t remove its usefulness in other aspects, as you mentioned with the T-62. I can already see the people going “but muh, Russia army obsolete !1!1!1!!!”. They forget that the actual Russian Federation… Read more »

Michal Slastan

Nonsense. DNR and LNR have zero T62, just as well as Ukraine. Ukraine did not have those tanks in 2014. Those are ruZZian wrecks driving around the battlefield. I pitty the orcs that have to enter those steel coffins.

Henry Whitworth

The Putin trollskies are relentless on this site. Jerome does good work with these maps that draws attention from a lot of different bloggers and news organizations so it also draws the spinners. They choke out every conversation here with this, “Hey ya gotta be fair to the Russian perspective. You’re being biased.” stuff.

Tristan

Even if they send T-62 only on “secondary” fronts, it means they are running out of modern tanks. Remember: Russia was supposed to have thousands of modern tanks in reserve. We now know it wasn’t true and that their losses (750 confirmed by oryx, probably more than 1000 in reality) is not sustainable.

Noelle

no – it does not mean that they are “running out of tanks”. This is a pure nonsense. They have problems with fast backfilling the losses – apparently they started to taking Bielorussian’s armor for replacements. That (if it’s true) would be a strong indication that the 1st rate (let’s call it that for a sake of simplicity) replacements e.g. machines which can be easily taken from the storage without any significant refitting or repair… Read more »

Tristan

So you are saying that they are running out of functioning, modern tanks. Thank you for the confirmation.

Noelle

what I am saying is: do not make fantastic (or any) conclusions from a singular phenomenons. There is a very dangerous and stupid tendency to underestimate Russian potential after decades of overestimating them.

NXP

Really?! T-62 has deadly gun?! No sh*t! Every gun can be deadly to unprotected humans. T-62 tanks were massacred during the first and the second Chechen wars. Even common RPG-7 is able to penetrate its armour. Another thing is they don’t produce parts for it any more so good luck with it. Oryx will be extremely busy counting abandoned T-62 in coming months.

Azog

RPG-7 makes a hole in 1.5m think concrete and – at least in theory – can take out any tank. The problem with RPG – just like with any other portable antitank weapon of course is getting within the range without being killed and then getting away still in one piece. And yes, believe it or not, 115mm gun can be perfectly deadly. Don’t get me wrong here, T-62s have very little to offer against… Read more »

Michal Slastan

T62 is not gonna be self propelled for long. That crap will break down before it can undertake any reasonable action. ruZZian army is completely pathetic.

Henry Whitworth

Come on. The fact that Russia is pulling long-obsolete tanks out of mothballs to try to add weight to an offensive that has massively failed in its objectives is a significant sign of what’s happening. Yes, a desperate army can make use of just about any kind of weaponry, perhaps. But you just skip over the fact that this is supposedly the second most powerful army in the world committing a large part of their… Read more »

cwDeici

Indeed, the T-62 can protect a crew against most small arms fire and provide a reasonable amount of direct firepower, albeit inaccurate by modern standards, and without an autoloader. M72 / RPG-16 or RPG-7 with the oldest warheads would be deadly for vehicles like T55 / T62 or M60. I hope posters are confused and not scared of Russia and treasonously wanting to negotiate (source: I called Putin and Chavez in 2003 and Erdogan on… Read more »

cwDeici

called that they’d take their countries to dictatorship (and in Venezuela’s case, starvation)

At any rate, this vehicle will die to modern weapons that aren’t even dedicated anti-tank weapons. The do add mass and firepower to an army if you can flesh it out enough that the enemy can’t kill them all at once, but it’s a death trap.

cwDeici

Actually the T-62 for all its horrid weaknesses in a modern context (it’s a decent tank for its own era), will probably cause less logistical issues for the Russian war criminals, since it’s a simple machine compared to modern tanks. That said, it’s not good enough to use as a pillbox since it’ll die to RPGs. You could use it for indirect fire, but that’s not going to be much better than Russian helicopters dumping… Read more »

Hahaha, nevermind, they’re sending them to the Kherson frontline. RPG heaven, here we come!

Henry Whitworth

Yeah, I saw a report of that yesterday with that picture of their “protection” from top attack. I can feel bad for the poor saps they put in those things.

cwDeici

There’s plenty of evidence the T-62 is being sent to the frontlines, and it is absolutely a very obsolete tank. (smoothbore, 581hp, CAST STEEL armor for god’s sake) This doesn’t mean there won’t still be modern tanks at the frontline and on the way out, but it’s verified they were railing in T-62s, and if you’re being honest with yourself you wouldn’t try to get into semantics about how a 115mm gun is deadly if… Read more »

cwDeici

actually, the smoothbore cannon is fine for its time once again, but it lacks modern guidance. Seems the Russians are adding armor cages to their T-62s around Kherson (thus raising the profile, and reducing visibility) to protect against -javelins-… 🙂
Well, as much as it makes it even less useful, the cages might protect against an RPG hit (but it’s not like you’d need to aim for the turret).

cwDeici

apparently not the frontlines, but behind them. Well, that’s fine. Give it another 2 months and we’ll see these T-62s in combat on the frontlines, since the Russians are losing 7 confirmed tanks each day on average (should be significantly more with unconfirmed), from a starting point of around 2100 functional tanks they’ve now lost between one third to half their tanks. We’ll see these soon enough.

NXP

There are already reports of knocked out T-62. Unverified though.

Augusto14

Here is a somewhat different map, from a pro-Russian source, about the situation around Charkiw. Main differences to your map: RU controlled: Hu’riv Kozachok (NW of Udy), Dementlivka, Rubizhne UA controlled: Sosnivka, Shopyne, Zarichne, Khotimlya, Prymorske Contested (RU-controlled, but attacked by UA, see Telegram-link w. comments below): Tsupivka, Velykhi Prochodi, Ternova [Fights in/for the a/m have also been stated by the Charkiw AFU, videos of UA shelling of Velykhi Prochodi can be found at BlueSauron’s… Read more »

Cassad confirms the Ukrainian beachhead at Khotomlya, but for some reason neither liveuamap nor Jerome draw it as Ukrainian-controlled.
