Map of Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine one month into the Russian invasion (March 24, 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 have moved into large areas of the countryside north of Ukrainian capital city Kyiv (Kiev), along a wide swath of the northeastern border from Kyiv to the country's eastern end, and in a growing strip of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and parts of Mariupol, while also expanding control somewhat in Donetsk and much more in Luhansk, covering most of that province. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Irpin, Izium (Izyum), Rubizhne, Baryshivka, Makariv, and many more. Colorblind accessible. One month into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, forces of the Ukrainian government have managed to recapture some ground from Russia. However, Russian troops have made smaller, but still significant, advances along other fronts, such as within the port city of Mariupol.

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 March 15, with sources cited.

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 have moved into large areas of the countryside north of Ukrainian capital city Kyiv (Kiev), along a wide swath of the northeastern border from Kyiv to the country's eastern end, and in a growing strip of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and parts of Mariupol, while also expanding control somewhat in Donetsk and much more in Luhansk, covering most of that province. Full map includes key locations from the news, such as Irpin, Izium (Izyum), Skadovsk, Mariupol, Brovary, Voznesensk, the military base near the Polish border that was hit by Russian airstrikes, and many more. Colorblind accessible. The invasion of Ukraine is still proceeding slowly in its third week. While Russian and allied rebels have filled many gaps in their control around the country's edges, they've made only small progress towards capturing any more cities. Meanwhile, most of Ukraine's interior and western half remain under Ukrainian government control.

Map of Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine during the second week of the Russian invasion (March 6, 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 have moved into large areas of the countryside north of Ukrainian capital city Kyiv (Kiev), along a long slowly-growing swath of the northeastern border adjacent to Kharkiv city, and in a growing chunk of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and parts of Mariupol, while also expanding control somewhat in Donetsk and much more in Luhansk, covering most of that province. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Kherson, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, Volnovakha, Kharkiv, Romny, Mykolaiv, Bobrovytsya, and more. Colorblind accessible.

Ukraine Map: Russian Troops Gradually Advancing

In the week since our previous Ukraine control map report, Russia and allied rebels have continued expanding their control at a modest pace, seizing the small city of Kherson in the south, expanding separatist control to cover most of Luhansk province, and bringing the port city of Mariupol under siege. Kherson, though the largest city yet captured since the full-scale invasion began on February 24, isn't the biggest city taken from Ukraine by Russia overall, since the slightly larger Sevastopol and Simferopol in Crimea have been controlled by Russia since 2014 (meanwhile, the much larger city of Donetsk, as well as somewhat larger Luhansk, have also been controlled by pro-Russian rebels since that time).

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 have moved into large areas of the countryside north of Ukrainian capital city Kyiv (Kiev), along a long swath of the northeastern border adjacent to Kharkiv city, and in a robust chunk of territory just north of Crimea, while also expanding control a small amount in Donetsk and a larger amount in Luhansk. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Melitopol, Chernobyl, Hostomel Airport, Konotop, Kupiansk, Tokmak, Vasylkiv, Ivankiv, and the Kakhovka Reservoir. Colorblind accessible.

Russian Invasion Map: Ukraine at War

Months of US warnings that Russia was planning to invade Ukraine were proven right last Thursday, as Russian troops, tanks, ships, and aircraft flooded into the neighboring country. Russia had already taken over Ukraine's southern province of Crimea in 2014, and pro-Russia separatists claimed to have split off from eastern Ukraine after seizing much of Donetsk and Luhansk provinces. But Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine is a massive new escalation, unprecedented in Europe since World War II.

The above map shows control lines as of Sunday night - just before the first round of ceasefire talks - when Russian forces had captured significant chunks of rural Ukraine, but so far not gained control of any major cities (the situation a day later remains mostly unchanged). The map is based on reporting from various news media on the status of cities and towns, with lines of control in the countryside estimated with the help of other conflict-tracking websites and social media accounts.

Thumbnail preview of Syrian Civil War map: Full map shows territorial control in Syria in February 2022 (Free Syrian Army rebels, Kurdish YPG, Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS / Al-Nusra Front), and others). Includes areas of dispersed operational presence for so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), Turkish/TFSA control, joint SDF-Assad control, US deconfliction zone, and Turkey-Russia security corridor, plus recent locations of conflict and territorial control changes, including Tafas, Atmah, Ithriya (Athriyah), Ayn Issa and more. Colorblind accessible. Despite no changes to Syria's lines of control since 2020, the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS/ISIL) has continued a bloody insurgency in the central desert, which has increasingly occupied the Assad government and its Russian and Iranian allies. Meanwhile, fighting between Kurdish- and Turkish-led forces has carried on sporadically, and a sort of rebel resurgence in the southwest has come and gone.

See all this and more on the latest update to PolGeoNow's concise, professional Syrian Civil War control map, which includes a timeline of changes since our previous Syria map report in July, with sources cited.
