The summary of the 42nd day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 6th of April 2022 (Kyiv time).
Ukrainian officials have asked all citizens located in Luhansk and Donetsk Oblast to evacuate immediately amid the reports of Russian army preparations to launch a new offensive to capture both regions. US intel suggests Putin wants to conquer Donbas before May 9 and the Victory Day Parade.

includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast
Russian forces shelled Vuhledar, Marinka, Pisky, Avdiivka and Novabakhmutivka. Russian media claims its forces fully captured Novobakhmutivka, but Ukrainian side didn’t it confirm and there is no proper visual confirmation.
Ukrainian Special Forces reportedly worked behind enemy lines and damaged a railway between Crimea and Melitopol, hindering the supplies to Russian frontline units. Russian artillery hit Ukrainian positions in Huliaipole.
Russian forces captured a building of regional SBU and building of Prosecutors office in the center of Mariupol. They are both located close to the Drama Theater.

There was no change on the ground in Mykolaiv Oblast.
