The summary of the 79th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 13rd of May 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

Ukrainian troops are successfully advancing in the vicinity of Kharkiv and liberated a few more settlements.

Russian army has strengthened its presence in the border areas of Bryansk and Kursk Oblast amid fears of possible Ukrainian attacks across the border. Additional Russian artillery elements were deployed to the Bryansk Oblast as well.

Note regarding Right Sector units: I was recently approached by a representative of Right Sector, who expressed their wish to remove DUK (Ukrainian Volunteer Corps) marks from the daily reports. Unfortunately, all my proposed solutions were denied, and even through all my data come from the public sources, I was unable to change their minds. I decided to honor their request, and their marks have been removed from the daily maps for now.
