operations in the field, from the invasion to the advance in Donbass- Corriere.it

On the 54th day, after three weeks of reorganization, the second phase of the conflict began on 18 Aprilwith the Russians focusing on the disputed regions of Donetsk and Lugansk: the Army began hammering with artillery – in particular the symbolic city of Mariupol, which finally fell after three months – and tried a large encirclement of the Ukrainian troops which however failed due to the extension of the front, which forced to disperse forces. Moscow then adjusted its plans further: it restricted its objectives, proceeded with small encirclement and continued with the bombing. The third phase of the war, which began on 1 June, is the most difficult for the Ukrainiansunder pressure.
