Invasion Day 58 – Summary

The summary of the 58th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 22nd of April 2022 (Kyiv time).

Russian forces have captured a dozen of settlements in the direction of Slovyansk. Ukrainian reinforcements and guns supplied by the west are being moved to eastern Ukraine in mass. Most noticeable are manpads, Ukrainian soldiers downed at least five air targets during the last two days, including Ka-52 attack helicopter.

Kharkiv Frontline

includes the area of Kharkiv and Chuhuiv


 

Russian army shelled Udy (north of Zolochiv), which indicates the town is under Ukrainian control. It seems that Ukrainian troops are slowly and quietly advancing alongside the Russian border in the north.


Siverskyi Donets

includes the area of Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and Bakhmut


 

Russian elements assaulted Ukrainian positions near Zavody and Diborvne. The defenders repulsed both attacks.

The enemy have advanced south of Borova and captured Lozove and Zelena Dolyna, securing the northern gap. Heavy fighting was reported from Zarichne, where Russian army is attacking from two sides – Terny and Kreminna. Ukrainian command is aware of the worsening situation in the area and prepares to withdraw its forces behind Siverskyi Donets river if needed.

The situation in Popasna is complicated, but Ukrainian soldiers are holding all key positions. Same for Novotoshkivske.


Pryazovia Frontline

includes Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblast


 

Donetsk Oblast

Russian troops attacked Ukrainian positions at Vuhledar, Marinka, Avdiivka and near Horlivka, without success. However, the enemy have advanced alongside the regional border of Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk Oblast and reached Zelene Pole.

Zaporizhzhia Oblast

Russian elements have reached Malynivka, but it remains unclear if Ukrainian forces are still in control of the village, or they withdrew to the north.

Without change today.

https://twitter.com/KyivIndependent/status/1517789178335047680 According to Governor Oleh Synehubov, Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a successful counterattack on April 22, liberating and securing their positions in Bezruky, Slatine and Prudianka villages in Kharkiv Oblast.

I’m only making this theory based off that some have agreed and some have disagreed according to the number of likes and dislikes on your comment. Basically, that for some people it’s working just fine while others may have your same problem. It’s working fine for me on my laptop on chrome, being that I’m only off by a half… Read more »
