according to the @DefMon3 and a few others Pisky is still contested and at last in the Northern part of the settlements there are still some Ukr. elements, which would be consistent with the reports of shelling of the area by RuAF (and a R videos, too)

Fun fact from isw:
Since end of march, russia lost control over an area as big as denmark.
Since mid july it gained an area as big as Andorra.


control over Kuwait would differ from control over Sudan
Ukraines ressources + net income seems to be in the DPR and north of it + the coast line
on old military levels space means operational possibilities or resilience … in the ongoing unique war (in the 21st century the first medium scale war between developed “traditional” forces) space seems to define artillery range and defense lines

Indeed Russia took in the first hot phase (2014) a major strategic area with high population density and industrial development and therefor economic value. In 2022 it didn´t take any of those (Kharkiv, Odessa, Kiev). A land bridge to crimea, a bridgehead on the right bank of the dnjpre, and some minor regional centers, thats it to date. So it was “Kuwait” in 14 and “Sudan” in 22.
