can all you Russian trolls go back to your cave, nobody cares about what Russia are doing, we just want to see Ukraine drain all your resources and stop your illegal invasion.

Ardiana

You should be. “To win a war you must know yourself and your enemy”. If you only focus on what Ukraine is doing you’re missing a vital part of the puzzle and may be misinformed.

Casey

Hello I read your updates every day but always have a hard time finding referenced areas on the maps because the map zooms to an area well below the location of the cursor.

vachefolle

interresting good news :
https://twitter.com/uawarinfo/status/1519631076985286657/photo/2
Every forces are now focused on logistics (railway, road, bridges).

But Its difficult to see what is going to happen after 9 Mai, and Putin reaction
-Russia war declaration and full mobilization,
-Putin victory claim, whatever the situation is
-Nothing special, and long-term war as it is.
-Russia escalation on NATO, moldavia,…

Whatever

Ukrainian defenders successfully repelled enemy attacks on Nyzhnie and Orikhove. But you forgot to mention that Ukrainian defenders failed to repel enemy attacks on Svetlichnoe, which lies more to the East from Nyzhnie and was lost to Russians after they also took Novotoshkivske, which lies east from Orikhove. This shows your reporting is one sided and focuses mostly on minor Ukrainian wins and all Russian losses including status quo situations, and only if unavoidable reports major Russian wins and major Ukrainian loses. When did you last report that Russians have successfully repelled Ukrainian attacks anywhere? Exactly. Never.

Whatever

No, actually, that part is incorrect. You did once. “Ukrainian forces reportedly attempted to push east from Udy, but they were unsuccessful.”. Considering all the failed pushes from the Ukrainian side, that’s a bit scarce.

Ardiana

And the main jist of that report was that Ukraine made it all the way to Udy, which was new information at the time, so the news of that assault was favoring Ukrainians.

Whatever

I don’t mind informations in Ukrainians favor. As long as informations in Russian favor are listed in the same fashion. But of course since Jerome is Ukrainian it’s not in his interest to present the information in a balanced form.

NAZAR

Already received your +15 rubles? Name me at least one Russian or pro-Russian media that would show its defeats and victories as truthfully as you want from the pro-Ukrainian media. Can not? Exactly.

BAILARDIN

Hey buddy, great news, no one forces you to be on this site. If you don’t like it you can look somewhere else.
I might advise you this :

You will find many news that will fit your opinion on the subject.

Cheers.

Apparently sometime on morning of 28-April, RF took control of the small village of Travriiske (Kherson Oblast front). Link to Ukrainian news: https://t.me/suspilnekherson/11121

Kris Wustrow

Hi friend – on the Kherson front, it looks like RF took control of Oleksandrivka. The guy doing @Ukraine_map make a phone call with a local resident. He’s also showing that UKR army took over Kyselivka and Klapaya on the M14 highway, but I don’t know his source on that. Here’s his link.

Probably because this has been the case since Day 1: “Maps and article are based on the following sources: General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, official channels of Ukrainian regional administrations, Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), press released of Russian Army, DPR and LPR (taken with a grain of salt)”

Trent Barnes

Correction, also: Russians haven’t been trying to breach anything inside the Azovstal Plant for nearly a week.

Your statement that they have been unsuccessful is not true.

Putin reportedly ordered the attack to stop to avoid wasting Russian manpower since the remaining Azov and Ukrainian troops are completely contained and basically out of food, medicine and ammo inside the tunnels.

AZOG

My understanding is that the direct assault was cancelled. But shelling of Azovstal continues. Russian artillery is certainly working. Jerome – apparently – is referring to a video which appeared today with BMP3 and T72 using tank carousel

Trent Barnes

This is a losing game. No one with an inch of common sense thinks Ukraine stands any chance of stopping Russia from taking the entirety of Donbass, Luhansk and Southern Ukraine eventually.

A pointless slaughterhouse being incentivised by the US to weaken Russia by proxy, under the oh-so-noble- humanitarian cause.

A real shame if you ask me, a real shame.

Tiziano

like it or not, resisting is a choice of Ukraine, as long as it is willing to pay the price …. just as invading was a choice of Russia, of which it too will have to pay a price!

RutilantBossi

It’s not pointless, Ukraine has a though fight ahead but thanks to mobilization they managed to get the upper hand in manpower, new troops are reinforcing the front as days pass by, Russia on the other hand is getting weaker every day as they can’t fill in the losses, also the Russian military production is in a rough state, while Ukraine’s stockpile grows every day the Russian one gets slimmer and slimmer.

It’s not even funny how weak Russia turned out to be, if the west keeps funding Ukraine then Russia is pretty much done, remember that western economies are huge, NATO alone is worth 40 Trillion (without adding non-NATO US allies such as Japan), compare that to Russia’s 1.5 Trillion and you get the picture of just how much of a dwarf Russia is to the west.

If western economies spent even just 0.15% of their GDP in military aid to Ukraine a year that’d be enough to match the entire Russian military budget lmao.

JOSHUAMORALES

You live in some other world. Russian military-industrial plants are busier than ever. The sanctions do not affect the Russian defense industry in any way, the development cycle from conventional missiles and cruise missiles to fighter jets and ICBMs is in Russia. Now Roskosmos, instead of launching U.S. satellites into orbit, will fulfill orders for several dozen blocks of ICBMs.

Otjituuo

No one with an inch of common sense thought Putin would be foolish enough to invade. No one with an inch of common sense thought Kiev would last more than 72 hours. And here we are. I don’t support western politicians who are using the conflict for their own ends, but if Ukraine thinks it’s worth fighting to keep Russia from stealing their land or turning them into the next Belarus, that’s their choice. I agree with you that this land-grab is all a real shame. A disgusting shame.

josh

Sounds like Trent is a Russia lover. Lots of us with miles of common sense think Ukraine can stop and reverse Russia. Just give them the arms to do so. And that is happening.

freedom ukraine

“It’s a losing game” and “Kyiv fell in 3 days”, we – in Ukraine heard this on February 24, but today is 64 days of this war, I read your comment and understand why Putin believes that Western countries are weak and it is only worth attacking. ..
The Russian army is one of the most powerful armies in the world, and today is the 64th day of the war and this is Ukraine
if “it’s a losing game” as you said and we’re losing this war… European countries will be the next targets. I wonder what you will say about your country – should it surrender?

Tokugawa Ieyasu

Allow me to counter-argue his “losing game statement” by something a-bit-out-of-topic for metaphorization.

In the movie The Lord of the Rings, during the siege of Minas Tirith, the King of Gondor (Denethor) frantically shouted to his men, “Abandon your posts ! Flee ! Flee for your lives !”. Luckily, Gandulf arrived in time and beat him down before he was doing more damage, then urged the Gondorish garrison to stand and fight against the Mordorish orcs.

In the aforementioned scene, if you’re a normal human in Minas Tirith, which figure you would prefer come to the scene ? That panicky old, mad king shouting “we’re doomed, just give up already” ? Or the one who heroically defend the city and your lives ?

You might be not Gandulf or any of his brave companions, but being Denethor who contributed nothing to stop those evil destroying our civilization and hope by brute force yet shouting “we should just surrender and stop resistance” is a shame.

Such attitude is a shameful capitulation to the authoritarian regime wrecking the international security and humanitarianism in my eyes.

Kris Wustrow

Hey, I sent you the Sky News video of Ukraine losing those villages north of Slovyansk, but you didn’t use in update of your map. Why not?
