Before the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Russian Federation had illegally annexed Crimea and occupied parts of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, thus depriving 7.8% of our territory. Since February 24, 2022, Russian invaders have occupied 10.6% of the territory. At the same time, for 1 year and 8 months, the Kremlin buried in the Ukrainian chornozem:

At the same time, the Ukrainian counteroffensive continues. Ukrainian Armed Forces liberated 7.1% of the population during the war.
The worst situation is now in Avdiivka. Ther,e the occupiers are trying to repeat the script of Bahmut and destroy the town. However, Ukrainian soldiers do everything to stop the terrorists.
"Heavy Russian equipment losses around Avdiivka will likely undermine Russian offensive capabilities over the long term," ISW.
There, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have destroyed significantly more Russian equipment than during the Bahmut fights. But it is expected that Putin will also collect new weapons and soldiers from the regions. However, this requires time that Ukraine and its allies can use to strengthen their military capabilities.
