Thumbnail previewing map of Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine on January 24, 2023, after Russia's capture of Soledar. In addition to the Crimean peninsula, which Russia had already seized in 2014, and parts of the far eastern Donetsk and Luhansk provinces (the Donbas region) already controlled by Russia-backed separatist rebels (and formerly declared independent as the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics), Russian forces still control a large strip of territory just north of Crimea, including large parts of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia provinces, as well as large additional areas of Donetsk and Luhansk provinces. Meanwhile, all of those provinces are now claimed by the Russian government as parts of Russia, creating a new claimed international border through what was until recently undisputed eastern Ukraine. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Soledar, Bakhmut, Potemkin Island, Orikhiv, Vodanye, and many more Colorblind accessible.

Russia is again on the offensive in Ukraine, having captured a strategic town in Donetsk and entered a small city nearby - but only after weeks of grueling, bloody ground warfare. Small Ukrainian advances have taken place elsewhere, but are outnumbered by various small Russian ones.

See all this and more on the latest update to PolGeoNow's concise, professional Ukraine war control map, which includes a detailed chronicle of changes and events since our previous Ukraine map report of November 30, with sources cited, as well as a close-up map of control within the claimed borders of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics (now claimed to be self-governing regions within Russia).

In addition to the Crimean peninsula, which Russia had already seized in 2014, and parts of the far eastern Donetsk and Luhansk provinces (the Donbas region) already controlled by Russia-backed separatist rebels (and now-formerly declared independent as the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics), Russian forces now control a large strip of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and Mariupol, as well as most of Luhansk province and large additional areas of Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk provinces, but have lost most of their territory in Kharkiv province and some of their territory in Luhansk, Donetsk, and Kherson. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Lyman, Kupiansk, Davydiv Brid, Kreminna, the Crimean Bridge, and many more. Colorblind accessible.

(Note: This edition of our Ukraine control map captures the situation in the days prior to Russia's Kherson retreat, while our next report, coming soon, will document the results of the withdrawal itself.)

Despite small gains in Donetsk, Russia and allied forces were already losing major ground in Ukraine prior to this week's Kherson withdrawal. In the month or so leading up to the retreat, Ukraine had already captured significant parts Kherson and Kharkiv provinces, plus bits of Luhansk and other parts of Donetsk.

Thumbnail preview of Ethiopia war map for November 2022, at the signing of the new truce, showing Tigray rebel control as well as areas claimed to be controlled by the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA/OLF-Shane) in western and central Ethiopia (Oromia). Also labels key areas in the Benishangul-Gumuz insurgency. Colorblind accessible.

Since the breakdown of Ethiopia's April ceasefire, and with intensified Eritrean involvement, many of the northern state's major towns have come back under the control of the Ethiopian government and its allies. Now, a new truce claims it will bring an end to the Tigray war.

However, the wide-ranging insurgency in Oromia state, and a smaller one in Benishangul Gumuz state, continue elsewhere in the country.

See all this and more on the latest update to PolGeoNow's concise, professional northern Ethiopia control map, which includes a timeline of changes since our previous Ethiopia map report of April 22, with sources cited.

Map includes key locations from the news, such as Ternova, Sviatohirsk, Davydiv Brid, the Azot chemical plant in Sievierodonetsk, and more. Colorblind accessible. In recent weeks, Russia and its allies in Donetsk and Luhansk have maintained the upper hand in their fight against Ukraine's government, defending most of the frontlines and nearly completing the capture of Sievierodonetsk, the biggest remaining Ukraine-held city claimed by the self-declared Lugansk People's Republic. 

This update also sees the return of our old map of rebel control in eastern Ukraine, re-imagined as a close-up illustration of remaining Ukrainian control within the claimed borders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics.

See all this and more on the latest update to PolGeoNow's concise, professional Ukraine war control map, which includes a timeline of changes since our previous Ukraine map report of May 19, with sources cited.

Thumbnail preview of Central African Republic conflict: 2021 map of rebel and government control. Updated to June 5, 2022, showing territorial control by the CAR government (with Russian Wagner Group mercenaries and the UN's MINUSCA peacekeeping force), CPC rebel coalition (FPRC, UPC, MPC, 3R),  other ex-Séléka rebels (RPRC, MLCJ), Anti-balaka militias, and other armed groups such as Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Colorblind accessible.

Pro-government forces led by the Russian Wagner Group have accelerated their campaigns in the eastern CAR, carving out new chains of government-held towns deep inside the once-rebel-dominated northeast. Meanwhile, the UPC, perhaps the country's most powerful rebel faction, has rejoined the larger anti-government coalition.

Map of Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine almost three months into the Russian invasion (May 19, 2022). In addition to the Crimean peninsula, which Russia had already seized in 2014, and parts of the far eastern Donetsk and Luhansk provinces (the Donbass region) already controlled by Russia-backed separatist rebels (and declared independent as the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics), Russian forces control a large strip of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and parts of Mariupol, as well as large additional areas of Donetsk and Luhansk, and other areas of Ukraine's northeast. Ukrainian capital city Kyiv (Kiev) is no longer under siege. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Popasna, Rubizhne, Bilohorivka, Staryi Saltiv, the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, and more. Colorblind accessible. Russia-led forces have nearly surrounded the last Ukraine-held city in Luhansk after capturing two long-contested towns nearby, and have just about completed their control of Mariupol. On the other hand, Ukrainian forces have ended the siege of Kharkiv city in the north, driving Russian forces back towards the border there.

Map of Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine over two months into the Russian invasion (May 4, 2022). In addition to the Crimean peninsula, which Russia had already seized in 2014, and parts of the far eastern Donetsk and Luhansk provinces (the Donbass region) already controlled by Russia-backed separatist rebels (and declared independent as the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics), Russian forces control a large strip of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and parts of Mariupol, as well as large additional areas of Donetsk and Luhansk, and other areas of Ukraine's northeast. Ukrainian capital city Kyiv (Kiev) is no longer under siege. Map includes key locations from the news, such as including Izium, Popasna, Rubizhne, the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, and more. Colorblind accessible. Recent changes to the map of control in Ukraine have been subtle, with Russia continuing its gradual advance, but Ukrainian forces also recapturing some areas. Ukraine also seems to have begun a campaign of covert attacks across the border into Russia.

Russia Completes Withdrawal from Northern Ukraine

In the more than two weeks since PolGeoNow's previous Ukraine control map report, Russian forces have completed their withdrawal from north-central Ukraine, and are now beginning a new push to complete their control of the eastern Donbass (Donetsk and Luhansk) region. Fighting this month has largely been focused on the southeastern city of Mariupol, which is now thought to be under full Russian control except for one industrial area. If Russia completes its control there, Mariupol will be the largest city captured since the start of the 2022 invasion.
