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.
includes Kyiv and Zhytomyr 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.
A Russian missile hit an oil depot near Zhytomyr and caused severe damage to the area.
includes Chernhiv and Sumy 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.
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.
includes Kharkiv and Luhansk 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.
Russian forces are reportedly moving towards Slovyansk from Svatove. The enemy also tried to break Ukrainian defense lines near Sievierodonetsk, but wasn’t successful.
includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia 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.
Russian forces amassing its forces in direction of Zaporizhzhia. Ukrainian forces are preparing defenses to repel any attack on the regional capital.
includes Kherson, Mykolaiv and Odesa Oblast
Russian Forces continue to attack Mykolaiv airport, but so far without a success. The main force meanwhile continues to move north towards Voznesensk.
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.
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.
