Campaign map as of July 2

Following the refusal of Russian-backed insurgents to lay down their arms or cooperate in a unilateral ceasefire, President Petro Poroshenko announced the resumption of the Anti-Terrorist Operation of the Armed Forces & National Guard on late on June 30.

We will attack and we will liberate our land. The end of the ceasefire is our response to terrorists, rebels, looters, all those who mock the civilians who paralyze the economy of the region; who rip the payment of salaries, pensions, stipends; who undermine the railroads, destroy water pipes, those who deprive a normal peaceful life.

Since July 1 the campaign has been ongoing, these are today’s events:

Since you’re here – we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away. But we’re here to stay, and will keep on providing quality, independent, open-access information on Ukrainian reforms, Russia’s hybrid war, human rights violations, political prisoners, Ukrainian history, and more. We are a non-profit, don’t have any political sponsors, and never will. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

    I agree please go back to old format. This makes no sense.

      Can you clarify? We’re trying to find what works best.

    This format, with updating timeline, is good. It always takes time for people to get used to new formats. Good work!

    Don’t remember old format, but you need to make date clear – at the moment I am not sure if the posts are for the 1st or the 2nd July?. Also would be useful to indicate you are using 24h time indicator (ie not 9pm but 21h00). Thanks and good luck!!!
