The Russian Army remains stalled in its offensives at Kyiv, Chernihiv, Konotop, Sumy, and Kharkiv. Russian forces operating in the areas of Luhansk and Donetsk provinces also have made little gain and may be pausing to rest the troops. In the south, the Russian Army recovered most of the territories on the southern bank of the Dnipro River, between Kokhovka and Zaporizhzhia, but the junction of forces at Mariupol was broken by Ukrainian forces. Also, Russian forces have been pushed back from Mikolaiv. Compare today’s military situation, with that of late 28 February/early 1 March, displayed on the map below.
