The Izyum-Severodonetsk-Bakhmut triangle continues to be the focus of Russian fierce military aggression, with some analysts estimating that half of deployed enemy forces are stationed around the Donbas pocket in western Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

War watchers fear that Russian forces could take Lyman this week, drawing closer to Slovyansk. The enemy has pounded Lyman to ash and ruins including the use of prohibited thermobaric bombs.  Ukraine rail services are still working heroically through the carnage, racing to evacuate civilians ahead of the enemy hordes.

Partisan resistance in the occupied territories of the south coastal plains continues to be effective. Guerillas near Melitopol blew up rail tracks that serve on resupply routes for enemy forces in the south.  

Despite brutal crackdowns, local journalists estimate that the vast majority of residents in southern Ukraine are ready to resist occupation, in contrast to eastern Donbas and Crimea that had plenty of cooperative residents in 2014.
