The summary of the 29th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 23:59 – 24th of March 2022 (Kyiv time).

It’s been a month since the Russian invasion of Ukraine has begun. Iconically, it marks the first day when Ukrainian troops reported more successful operations than the invading force.

Polesia Frontline

includes Kyiv and Zhytomyr Oblast

Kyiv Oblast

Ukrainian forces launched an offensive operation in the west and liberated Lukyanivka and Lukashi. During the operation, Ukrainian troops captured and destroyed a number of Russian tanks.

Zhytomyr Oblast

There was no change on the ground in Zhytomyr Oblast.

Northern Frontline

includes Chernhiv and Sumy Oblast

Chernihiv Oblast

Russian troops, for the first time since the beginning of the invasion, attacked Ukrainian checkpoints at Slavutych. Ukrainian troops reportedly repulsed the attack, but the outlook doesn’t look promising. The city is too far from Chernihiv.

Sumy Oblast

Russian troops shelled Okhtyrka again, the town is practically non-existing. The fierce battle of Trostyanets has continued on Thursday. Several buildings are on fire, but the local firefighters cannot get there due to ongoing fighting.

Sloboda Frontline

includes Kharkiv and Luhansk Oblast

Kharkiv Oblast

Ukrainian forces denied Russian claims about the loss of Izium, they reportedly still control the south of the city. Russian troops seem to given up on Kharkiv and just continue to cause irreversible damage to the regional capital.

Luhansk Oblast

Russian forces struct Sievierodonetsk and Rubizhne today, killing at least five civilians. The fierce fighting continued in Popasna, with no success for the Russian attackers.

Pryazovia Frontline

includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast

Donetsk Oblast

There was no change on the ground in Donetsk Oblast.

Zaporizhzhia Oblast

Ukrainian drone Bayraktar TB2 hit and reportedly destroyed a Russian landing ship in Berdyansk. The strike also caused damaged to two other Russian ships nearby.

Ukrainian elements attacked Malynivka from Huliaipole. The operation was successful and Ukrainian troops are now in control of the village.


Russian forces reached the Church of the Intercession in the center of Mariupol. Azovstal plant remains contested. The area under Ukrainian control is slowly shrinking.

Southern Frontline

includes Kherson, Mykolaiv and Odesa Oblast

Mykolaiv Oblast

There are unverified claims that Ukrainian forces reversed all Russian gains in Mykolaiv Oblast and pushed them back to Kherson Oblast. I’ll not rush the judgement and wait a day for clarification, just to be sure.

Kherson Oblast

Ukrainian artillery shelled Chornobaivka area in the evening, most likely the airfield nearby. Russian artillery, on the other hand, hit Oleksandrivka in the south and caused vast damage to residential buildings.
