Invasion Day 12 – Summary

The summary of the twelfth day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, 7th of March 2022.

Today was relatively calm. Neither side gained a new ground. Russian forces are regrouping and preparing for a new phase of ground offensive.

Note: I decided to change frontlines and areas to respect more Ukrainian territory layout. It’s hopefully for the better.

Polesia Frontline

includes Kyiv and Zhytomyr Oblast

Kyiv Oblast

Russian forces continue to amass near Irpin, Chechen units arrived to the area as well. The time of attack on Kyiv is approaching. Ukraine reports enemy movement north of Brovary, but there is currently not enough data to geolocate them.

Zhytomyr Oblast

A Russian missile hit an oil depot near Zhytomyr and caused severe damage to the area.

Northern Frontline

includes Chernhiv and Sumy Oblast

Chernihiv Oblast

Ukrainian Territorial Defense units ambushed two Russian logistical convoys near Chernihiv and destroyed all vehicles. This causes more problems for Russian units roaming around the region. Ukrainian forces prepare for possible upcoming offensive to besiege the city of Chernihiv.

Sumy Oblast

There are still some roaming Russian elements in the south of Sumy, but there is no visual proof to geolocate them. There are sights of upcoming offensive to besiege the city of Sumy.

Sloboda Frontline

includes Kharkiv and Luhansk Oblast

Kharkiv Oblast

Russian forces are regrouping near Kharkiv and continue to shell the city. There are some roaming elements in the south, but we have no information regarding their location.

Luhansk Oblast

Russian forces are reportedly moving towards Slovyansk from Svatove. The enemy also tried to break Ukrainian defense lines near Sievierodonetsk, but wasn’t successful.

Pryazovia Frontline

includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast

Donetsk Oblast

The report of yesterday’s counter-attack of Ukrainian forces near Mariupol was confirmed. The Ukrainian Azov Regiment destroyed several Russian vehicles and captured at least three T-72B3 tanks and one T-64BV tank.

Zaporizhzhia Oblast

Russian forces amassing its forces in direction of Zaporizhzhia. Ukrainian forces are preparing defenses to repel any attack on the regional capital.

Southern Frontline

includes Kherson, Mykolaiv and Odesa Oblast


Mykolaiv Oblast

Russian Forces continue to attack Mykolaiv airport, but so far without a success. The main force meanwhile continues to move north towards Voznesensk.

Kherson Oblast

Ukrainian artillery (or some say Special Forces) attacked Kherson airfield and destroyed several Russian helicopters stationed there. However, there has been no visual proof so far, only the reports of explosions from that area.

Full map

I decided to create a full map of Russian invasion with points of interests. I believe it’ll be a good addition to current maps and will nicely summary the ongoing Russian invasion.

Maps and article are based on the following sources:

General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, official channels of Ukrainian regional administrations, Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), press released of DPR and LPR (taken with grain of salt)

Doesn’t Z stand for Zelensky?


Hi, I join the congratulations to the authors of the site, I wanted to ask your thoughts on a UKRAINE-RUSSIA agreement, it seems possible to reach it on these points:

* Ukraine in the EU but not born
* Russian reconceived Crimea
* Special status (I don’t know what that means for more pro-Russian areas)

Thanks for the replies


Great site.

→ Russia is having an operational pause to regroup and accumulate forces.

→ Ukrainian hit-and-run tactics continue to be effective.

→ The outcome of this invasion may well be determined within the next few days.

→ Russia thinks that the weak-link which drives Zelensky’s Government to surrender may be the people of Kyiv – hence the brutality and lack of concern against civilians there.


I like the Full Map but I think it’s easier to read in the original white/red color scheme with the bordering countries greyed out; probably easier for you to update too. Then you could just update the master map and then snapshot/crop out each of the fronts as needed.

Amazing work! Thanks!

Slava Ukraini!
