The summary of the 47th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 11th of April 2022 (Kyiv time).
Monday has passed without significant changes on the ground. The only bright exception is north of Kharkiv, where Ukrainian troops regained control of Zolochoiv. The situation in Donbas and in the south remains unchanged.
includes Kharkiv and Luhansk Oblast
Ukrainian troops have reportedly launched a counter-offensive north-west of Kharkiv and regained control of Zolochoiv. The Russian advance towards Barvinkove and Slovyansk have been stopped for now. It’s very likely this is a planned pause before the imminent large scale attack.
Russian troops attacked Ukrainian positions near Lysychansk and Popasna, but didn’t gain any new ground.
includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast
Russian troops shelled Marinka, Pisky and Avdiivka, but they didn’t have success breaking through Ukrainian lines in the area.
There was no change on the ground in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.
Ukrainian Azov reported late in the evening a Russian chemical attack on Azovstal plant. We’re waiting for confirmation. The situation in the other parts of Mariupol remains unchanged or covered by the fog of war.
includes Kherson, Mykolaiv and Odesa Oblast
There was no change on the ground in Mykolaiv Oblast.
There was no change on the ground in Kherson Oblast.

“regained control of Zolochoiv”
the name of the village is Zolochiv
Calm before the storm
Any more intel on that big column moving towards Izium and composition of those forces? Would indicate exploit push southwards unless they have some other plans and turning west towards Husarivka & Andriivka.
Thanks for the updates even on the quiet days.
Today I watched the last video made by CaspianReport, “The Ukraine War From Russia’s Perspective”. It’s about the “heartland theory”, far to be new, but it is well explained. Here the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkrLUFAcjH0 I’m not linked whatsoever to CaspianReport, his conclusion is exactly what I think is the russian mindset behind the reason for this invasion. @Jerome: If you don’t like people posting links like I just did, tell me and I won’t do it… Read more »
in case you’re into geopolitics, you might be interested in Prof Mearsheimer’s views about the present crisis. The problem with Mearsheimer is that he is a realist while today’s politics is mostly shaped by devoted idealists so you won’t see him on mainstream media. It’s not just about Russia vs Ukraine, in case someone didn’t notice yet we are in the middle of a world (cold) war. Personally I think WW1 has the closest resemblance,… Read more »

yes, I mean this
Might be a good idea to add Novoajdar (Luhansk) to your map:
that was a big ammo dump that was destroyed two days ago..
