The summary of the 30th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 23:59 – 25th of March 2022 (Kyiv time).
Ukrainian forces liberated several villages in Kharkiv and Kherson region. Russian Army crossed the river near Izium and have broken through Ukrainian lines.

Local authorities denied information about Ukrainian offensive and encirclement of Russian troops in Bucha and Hostomel. Heavy fighting was reported near Makariv. Russian artillery attacked Ukrainian positions at Nova Buda, Ozershchyna and Nalyvaikiva.
Russian forces unsuccessfully attempted to break thought Ukrainian lines in the vicinity of Brovary.
There was no change on the ground in Zhytomyr Oblast.
includes Chernhiv and Sumy Oblast
The regional capital of Chernihiv is de-facto besieged. The last free roads leading from/to the city are now in the fire range of Russian troops. The situation in Slavotych remains difficult. Russian snipers are active in the area, there are KIAs among Ukrainian defenders.
Russian troops have entrenched in the vicinity of Sumy, complicating the possible operation to lift the siege of the regional capital. Ukrainian troops have switched to offensive in Trostianets, they no longer just defend the northern part of the town.
includes Kharkiv and Luhansk Oblast
Ukrainian 92nd Mechanized Brigade attacked Russian positions at the eastern outskirts of Kharkiv. As the result of the attack, Ukrainian troops liberated Mala Rohan and Vilkhivka.
Russian forces crossed Seversky Donets south of Izium and have broken through Ukrainian lines. The enemy breakthrough was stopped at Kamyanka and Tykhotske. The status of Ukrainian troops in the southern part of Izium is unclear.
Russian forces continue to bomb Rubizhne, Sievierodonetsk, Lysychansk and Popasna, but they didn’t advance on the ground.
includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast
Russian forces claim they have captured the area between Verkhnotoretske and Panteleimonivka. I couldn’t verify the information at this moment, but it’s good to keep it in mind for the next summaries.
There was no change on the ground in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.
The area under Ukrainian control is slowly shrinking. French President Macron said that France, Greece and Turkey are working on a humanitarian operation to evacuate civilians from Mariupol.
includes Kherson, Mykolaiv and Odesa Oblast
Russian troops left Snihurivka. I cannot verify the fate of the Russian element in the area of Inhulka, Yavkyne and Partyzanske, so I decided to keep the uncontrolled territory there. Let’s hope we all learn more tomorrow.
Ukrainian troops liberated Novovorontsovka on the edge of Kherson Oblast in the north.
