Russia-Ukraine War Map
Malcontent News updates the Russia-Ukraine War Map several times daily as new information is reviewed and verified. Our map is unique because we do more than move lines when there are changes. We look closely at the terrain and where troops can effectively set up a line of defense. We geolocate videos and photos. We never guess and clearly mark gray areas on our map. We also respect operational security and, on occasion, will withhold sharing information publicly.
Additionally, you can read our ongoing coverage and analysis of the Russia-Ukraine War.
You can click on the upper-left corner icon to open the map menu or click on the target square in the upper-right corner to view it within Google Maps. The map is updated several times a day as new information is confirmed.
