Why you didn’t say about rocket attack to Donetsk city?

Great Job!
Let me draw your attention to yesterday’s Ukrainian evening update (you’ve probably already seen it), which includes lots of village names where fighting was going on over the day. These village names suggest a couple of interesting developments:
– Pushback of Russian troops west of Chernihiv to almost the state border, i.e. the Dnjepr;
– A much more successful counter offensive out of Charkiv to the NW than most (myself included) would have thought, which has brought fighting to three border towns with Russia, and appears to cut off major supply roads from Belgorod.
– the reported defeat of a Russian convoy in Adijwka/ Kamianka suggests quite some Ukrainian control still of areas NE of Mariupol;
– the Russian troops that have by-passed Nikolaew in direction Wossenesk appear to have gone lost, as there was no fighting reported north of Nisky (your “sweep of the road between Nikolaew and Nova Odessa”);
– there still seem to be Ukrainian pockets in Cherson region, including the part south of Nikolaew (Tomyna Balka etc.) – might however also reflect an Ukrainian counterattack. The Ukrainian briefing furthermore reported fighting in the county capitals of Kakhova and Beryslaw.

I like the fact that maps while sharing some details aren’t too specific. While it’s important to have an accurate historical account (As this conflict/war like many others will be debated over, used in war crime commissions and studied by strategists for year to come), it’s also important not to give an advantage due to the “realtime” nature of the information thats available.

So while it would be nice to have all the bells and whistles of seeing where things are, it should really only be applied to a histogram of previous days so the information is stale and non-actionable.

Hi Jerome,

THanks for this work, its very helpfull and your Twitter stream is great too.

I follow several maps with yours, like LiveMap, and even if they are less military focused, they show some differences on the occupied area, as they also show there is combat reported in these areas (suggesting russian control over it is not that tight. The current map shows interesting difference on the Kharkiv-Sumy area, maye you could develop?

Thanks again!

Thank you for the posts every day, even though not so many comments are here, anymore.

Good development at Mykolaiv, hopefully continouing.

Really good job you are doing here, IMHO these are the best maps of the conflict. I would really appreciate, if we can be able to see the change from yesterday (different tone of color or something like that).

But still awesome job, thank you for that!
