The Truth About A No-Fly Zone In Ukraine

Russian invasion of Ukraine map as of March 8, 2022. From Wiki Commons by Viewsridge. Ukraine forces have managed several local counterattacks in the north and near Kharkiv. Chernihiv isn’t cut off now, but remains close to it. Sumy is nearly surrounded in the east and a major Russian mechanized force is approaching Kyiv from the east. Russian forces west of Kyiv are pushing south to cut off the capitol and west to secure their supply lines. The “stalled” convoy near Kyiv seems to be mostly logistics focused, likely pausing to resupply combat units and not stuck. In the south Ukraine’s defense appears near-collapse, with Russian forces seeking a river crossing to get at Odesa. Donbas is slowly being encircled, with the fights around Kharkiv likely so fierce because losing this region exposes the rear of the major formations in Donbas to attack.
