Ukrainian troops appear to have forced a Russian withdrawal into Kharkiv and are launching counterattacks near the northeastern city in an attempt to disrupt supply lines and make it more difficult for Moscow to encircle kyiv’s forces and to capture the entire Donbass region, according to analysts and local officials. To the southeast, the two sides are effectively at an impasse.

Here are the updates to the main battlegrounds:

Kharkiv: Ukrainian forces launched a counterattack in the area, repelling Russian troops, officials said. Moscow forces are trying to prevent Ukrainian troops from pushing towards the Russian border, Ukrainian military officials said on Sunday.

Luhansk: Ukrainian forces blew up railway bridges between the towns of Rubizne and Severodonetsk to halt Russian advances in the region, Ukrainian military officials said on Sunday.

Mariupol: The Ukrainian army described Sunday “artillery fire and massive air strikes” in a steelworks in this devastated city, where the last resistants of the Ukrainian army took refuge. Ukrainian officials say they are negotiating with the Russians to release wounded fighters.

Zaporizhia: In this southeast region, the front lines are almost completely frozen – with both sides effectively at an impasse, a Pentagon intelligence official said last week. From their bases in the small villages of the region, Ukrainian and Russian soldiers can barely see each other and exchange artillery fire to suppress any advance.

Kyiv: A wartime curfew began an hour later from Sunday as the capital cautiously moves towards a semblance of normalcy. The new curfew is from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., Mayor Vitali Klitschko said in a Telegram message.

Lvov: A Russian missile struck military infrastructure in the western Ukrainian city early on Sunday, regional governor Maksym Kozytskyy said in a Telegram message. No deaths or injuries were immediately reported in the attack, he said.
