Thank you for your maps, but sometimes I meet contradictions even within the same page.

Russian troops are on defense everywhere but the vicinity of Bakhmut

and then on all fronts attempts to attack:

Russian forces attempted to regain lost positions…

Russian troops attempted to advance closer to Bilohorivka…

Russian forces attacked towards Nevelske, fighting continues.

And so on

Apparently, the Russians just sent an extra thousand troops to Kherson city. What are the chances that Ukraine is using Kherson to draw the enemy away from the real target (again)?


they don’t only send them to kherson tho…. like some thousands to kherson some tens of thousands to all the other fronts, the mobilized troops are being send in.


Yes. Russian conscripts are sent in (without any training nor good equipment), and they are slaughtered.


Jerome, could you show the Wagner defense line on your maps, to help us locate it ?
Thank you for your work.


The funny thing is 100 tons of sand will make the whole effort pointless


if it slows down the enemy it’s not pointless, cuz it does what a defensive line has to do and that would be slowing the enemy down if not stopping them.


Appreciate the bi-daily updates!


Thanks Jerome
