A City by City Guide to the Conflict in Ukraine

The locations: Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea.

The actors: Russians and Ukrainians, but also fighters of unclear origins, separatists, protesters and militants.

The focal points of the struggle: Kiev, Simferopol and Sevastopol, then Donetsk, Luhansk, Slovyansk and Horlivka.

To call the situation in Ukraine complex, would be an understatement. And with conflict escalating in more and more cities, it can be hard to keep abreast of events in the country.

This map helps you navigate through past and current flash points in Ukraine and will be updated as events unfold. Hover your cursor over the individual cities for background information on each location and find links to our archive for an overview of our coverage.
