The summary of the 122nd day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 25th June 2022 (Kyiv time).
Ukrainian Army withdrew from Sievierodonetsk and nearby towns across the river due to unfavorable situation south of Lysychansk. Russian forces continue to put pressure on the Ukrainian defenders south of Bakhmut and the previously mentioned Lysychansk. The enemy also entered Hirske and Zolote and met no resistance.
In the south, Ukrainian forces seem to liberate a town of Vysokopollia and forced Russian forces to retreat.
includes the area of Kharkiv and Chuhuiv
Kharkiv & Chuhuiv direction
- Ukrainian General Staff reported increased Russian reconnaissance and sabotage activity in Kharkiv area.
- Russian helicopters attacked Ukrainian positions at Yavirske, only confirming the settlement is under Ukrainian control.
includes the area of Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and Bakhmut
- Russian troops captured Dibrovne and advanced towards Korulka. The attack on the village was repulsed.
- Russian forces advanced towards Mazanivka and briefly captured the settlement in the morning. Ukrainian troops managed to regain some of the lost positions in the afternoon. The village remains contested.
- The enemy attacked Ukrainian positions at Dolyna and Bohorodychne, both attacks were repulsed. However, Russian troops remain in control of the northern part of Bohorodychne.
You can find detailed maps of Bakhmut and Lysychansk/Sievierodonetsk area below.
includes the vicinity of Bakhmut
- Russian troops captured Volodymyrivka and simultaneously advanced towards Pokrovske from Pylypchatyne and Volodomyrivka. The assault was repulsed, but the situation remains complicated.
- The enemy advanced west of Roty and pushed Ukrainian defenders closer to the Vuhlehirsk Powerplant.
- The continuous attacks towards Vershyna are putting Ukrainian troops stationed at Novoluhanske and the nearby powerplant at great danger. Ukrainian defenders are holding on so far, but the situation ain’t easy.
includes the vicinity of Lysychansk and Sievierodonetsk
- Ukrainian troops fully retreat across the Siversky Donets river to Lysychansk. The battle of Sievierodonetsk and nearby towns is over.
Apologies for Borove marked with gray color. I forgot to change it.
- Russian troops attacked southern outskirts of Lysychansk, the fighting is ongoing.
- Ukrainian defenders repelled an enemy attack towards Vovchoyarivka.
- The Russian propaganda of thousands of Ukrainian troops besieged in the area of Zolote and Hirske turned out to be false. Russian troops captured a dozen Ukrainian soldiers at most, likely the troops who covered the retreat and didn’t make it in time.
includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast
- The enemy attempted to advance towards Kamyanka in order to gain control over the primary road, but failed and was forced to withdraw.
- Russian forces attacked Ukrainian positions at Marinka and Niu-York, without success.
- The first battalion of Ukrainian 1st Tank Brigade has been relocated to the area of Zelene Pole and Vuhledar.
includes the vicinity of Kherson and Mykolaiv
- Recently released footage by Russian sources indicates that Blahodatne is in the gray zone and most likely not controlled by either side.
- An interesting situation has developed in the north of Kherson Oblast. Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian troops retreated from the prepared defensive positions to Olhyne, without giving any addition information.
- The next day, Ukrainian troops reportedly repelled a Russian attack from the direction of Potomkyne towards Vysokopillya. Russian BTG attempted to regain lost positions, but met a fierce resistance and withdrew.
- If both statements by Ukrainian General Staff are true, it seems Ukrainian troops are in control of Vysokopillya. The recent reports are also supported by locals on social media, who reported shelling of Vysokopillya for a several past days, indicating there was indeed a battle and Ukrainian Army gained some ground.
Ukrainian side announced a strict embargo on all information regarding Kherson Oblast and advance of Ukrainian troops. The only allowed source for this area are the reports by Ukrainian General Staff. I didn’t include the rumors spread by some other mapmakers (they turned out to be false again), so the reports here aren’t affected by this decision.
