From Wikipedia, in a visual modern way
Timeline of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

This timeline of the third phase of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine covers the period from 29 August 2022, when Ukrainian forces retook substantial ground during counteroffensives in the south and east, to the present day. Starting in October, Russia began a campaign of massive strikes against Ukrainian infrastructure.

This timeline is a dynamic and fluid list, and as such may never satisfy criteria of completeness. Please note that some events may only be fully understood and/or discovered in retrospect.

August 2022

29 August

Ukraine has reportedly launched a counteroffensive in the south.[1] The Ukrainian government said that its military had "breached Russia's first line of defense near Kherson", while the Ukrainian military also claimed to have struck a Russian military base in the Kherson region, though this claim is still not verified.[2] Russian forces claim that Ukrainian forces have suffered "heavy losses". Ukraine also claims that Russian paratroopers have fled the battlefield.[3]

30 August

Ukraine claims to have used decoy HIMARS units made out of wood. This may explain Russian claims of having destroyed multiple HIMARS systems. Ukrainian officials claim to have decoyed 10 Russian 3M-54 Kalibr cruise missiles alone. One US diplomat has noted that Russian sources have claimed more HIMARS destroyed than the US has sent. Another US Pentagon official has confirmed no HIMARS have been destroyed yet.[4]

Images from Maxar Technologies show holes in the roof of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. IAEA chief Rafael Grossi has confirmed that the support and assistance mission is "now on its way".[5]

31 August

Russia pulled its fighter jets out of Crimea and increased its surface-to-air missiles to defend against future shelling.[6]

Russia has stopped gas supplies to Germany via Nord Stream 1 for three days to perform repairs.[7]

According to the UK MoD, Ukrainian forces pushed the Russian "front line back some distance in places", due to Ukraine "exploiting relatively thinly held Russian defenses".[8]

Ukraine has released footage of a MiG-29 firing an AGM-88 HARM, which had to be somehow integrated into the MiG-29's analogue displays.[9]

The 3M-54 Kalibr,, also referred to it as 3M54-1 Kalibr, 3M14 Biryuza, is a family of Russian cruise missiles developed by the Novator Design Bureau (OKB-8). It first saw service in 1994. There are ship-launched, submarine-launched and air-launched versions of the missile, and variants for anti-ship, anti-submarine and land attack use. Some versions have a second propulsion stage that initiates a supersonic sprint in the terminal approach to the target, reducing the time that target's defense systems have to react, while subsonic versions have greater range than the supersonic variants. The missile can carry a warhead weighing up to 500 kilograms (1,100 lb) of explosive or a thermonuclear warhead.

4 September

The Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant has been cut from its main power line, with only a reserve line operational, which is supplying power to the grid. Only one of the six reactors remains operational.[19] Russia blamed this on an alleged Ukrainian attempt to retake the plant.[20]

After not being used for several months Ukraine is now using Bayraktar TB2 drones again. Ukraine has started putting footage from these online again after no new footage in the last two months. This has been credited to the use of HARM missiles and their impact on Russian air defences.[21]

Ukrainian President Zelenskyy said that Ukraine has recaptured 2,000 square kilometres (770 sq mi) since the start of the counteroffensive.[29]

The Russian-appointed officials of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics announced referendums to approve their annexation by Russia on 23–27 September.[54][55] Similar referendums were announced by the occupying Russian officials in Kherson and Zaporizhzhia.[56][57]

The Council of the EU approved 5 billion euros of macro-financial assistance for Ukraine.[58]

21 September

After a delay in broadcasting[59] Vladimir Putin announces a partial mobilization in his address on the morning of 21 September.

In a prerecorded speech, Vladimir Putin officially announced partial mobilization to begin immediately. Although Putin's address stated only reservists will be called up, with a focus on reservists with military experience, the official decree allowed for any citizen to be conscripted with exceptions for only age, sickness, and imprisonment status; it was reported that anti-war protesters who had been arrested were being conscripted.[60] Furthermore, militants in the Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics will be considered soldiers of the Russian Federation going forward, and the LPR and DPR military units will be reordered according to Russian standards.[61] Defence minister Sergei Shoigu said that 300,000 reservists will be mobilized.[62] Putin also raised the threat of a nuclear response, saying "Russia will use all the instruments at its disposal to counter a threat against its territorial integrity—this is not a bluff".[63]

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia reported that Russia released ten foreign prisoners of war after mediation by Mohammed bin Salman.[64] According to Robert Jenrick, the junior health minister of Britain, Aiden Aslin is among the prisoners released.[65] Viktor Medvedchuk was reportedly freed as part of the deal.[66]

A record high of 215 Ukrainian soldiers, including fighters who led the defence of the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol, have been released in a prisoner exchange with Russia after mediation by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.[67] Zelenskyy announced that, as part of the agreement, five of the freed captives would remain in Turkey in secure but comfortable conditions until the war is over.[68]

There were planned votes in the Mykolaiv and Kharkiv oblasts that never materialized, mainly owing to limited control of territory.[75] As a side effect of these referendums, Russia may now claim that the "very existence of the state is at risk", since much of the war is happening on what it now illegally considers Russian territory. This may be used as justification of using nuclear weapons.[76][77]

Over 194,000 Russian citizens, primarily fighting age men and their families, have left Russia in what has been called a "mass exodus" after the announcement of a draft of 300,000 citizens to fight in the war. Many have gone to Kazakhstan, Serbia, Georgia, and Finland.[78]

Fire after strike on an infrastructure facility in Kyiv Oblast

Russia launched about 85 to 100 missiles at a number of Ukrainian cities. The recent strategic bombing campaign has caused severe shortages of electricity and water at multiple cities.[182][183][184] According to the Ukrainian Air Force some 77 of 96 Russian missiles were shot down. A Pentagon official claims the Russian plan is to exhaust the Ukrainian air defences. At one stage some 50 missiles were in combat "within minutes" near the Polish border.[185][186]

A missile crossed over Polish borders and struck the village of Przewodów, killing two civilians. Top leaders in Poland held an emergency meeting.[187] Initial assessments by the United States found that the missile was likely to have been an air defence missile fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile.[188][189][190]

According to Ukraine's Operational Command South, Ukrainian rocket and artillery units attacked Russian positions on the left bank of the Dnipro River and in the area of the Kinburn Spit.[191][192]

After the missile strikes, more than 10 million people were without power by 17 November, but a day later Ukrainian officials reported that electricity had already been restored to "nearly 100%" of Ukraine.[193][194]

According to Ukrainian officials, one of the wrecks of missiles found after a missile attack earlier that day is that of an "X-55/Kh-55" cruise missile. These missiles are apparently incapable of carrying a conventional warhead, but this specific missile had an "imitation block" (model for training) of a nuclear bomb.

29 November

Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary-General of NATO, made a speech at the meeting of NATO foreign ministers at Bucharest, in which he expressed alliance commitment to support Ukraine for as long as is required, because allowing Russia to win would only embolden Putin.[206] He also promised Ukraine that NATO would one day accept them as a member and that Putin cannot deny sovereign nations the right to make their own sovereign decisions that are not a threat to Russia. He also speculated that the main challenges to Putin are democracy and freedom.[207][208]

30 November

Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, speaking in the name of the EU, suggested the creation of a UN court to investigate war crimes committed by Russia. Russia does not recognize the International Criminal Court, so the European Commission has proposed two possible alternative ways to hold Russia accountable: either to create a court that would be set up by international treaties, or to create an international court with a number of judges from several countries. She estimated the war-damage to Ukraine is about 600 billion Euros. She proposed a financial plan to help pay for this. She pointed out that the EU has frozen 300 billion Euros worth of Russian central bank reserves and 20 billion Euros worth of money belonging to Russias oligarchs, which she suggested should be invested. The investments could be given to Ukraine when sanctions are lifted.[209][210][211] The original statement by Ursula von der Leyen included a claim that 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers and 20,000 Ukrainian civilians have been killed so far in the war. This angered unspecified Ukrainian military officials, who are reported to have said that the death toll is classified information. In response, the European Commission edited the video of von der Leyen's speech to remove this information. Official publications of the text of the speech was also edited to omit the numbers.[212][213]
