Today marks the 100th day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a campaign that began with a multipronged blitz meant to topple the government in Kyiv but which has evolved into a prolonged war of attrition in the country’s east. 

After being initially repelled from capturing Ukraine’s capital—an effort marred by Russian missteps—Russia has refocused on capturing the eastern Donbas region. Much of the area, Ukraine’s primary industrial center, has been under pro-Russian separatist control since 2014. 

In recent days, analysts say Russia has begun to slowly but steadily take control of key cities in the Donbas region. Western officials pledged another round of military aid, including long-range missile systems, though the weapons will take weeks to arrive.

To the south, Russia now controls the majority of Ukraine’s access to the Black Sea, with the exception of the port city of Odesa. See updates on war, with maps, here.

The death toll from the conflict has been hard to gauge. The United Nations has confirmed almost 4,150 civilian deaths, but believes the true count to be much higher.
