Support The Moscow Times!

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.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
