    Ukraine Conflict Update – March 4, 2022

    Specific Update Background Info 

    • ISW published its most recent Russian campaign assessment at 3:00 pm EST on March 4.
    • This daily synthetic product covers key events related to renewed Russian aggression against Ukraine.

    Key Takeaways March 4

    • Russian forces have advanced rapidly on the eastern outskirts of Kyiv, likely from the Sumy axis, and may attempt to encircle and/or attack the capital on the east bank of the Dnipro in the coming 24-48 hours.
    • Russian troops did not press a ground offensive against Kharkiv in the last 24 hours but have instead diverted forces to the west and southeast, likely supporting efforts against Kyiv and in and around Donbas respectively.
    • Russian troops have surrounded Mariupol and are attacking it brutally to destroy it or compel its capitulation.
    • Russian forces have renewed their ground advance on Mykolayiv, having secured Kherson city, likely to set conditions for a further attack toward Odesa. Russian naval infantry are likely poised to conduct amphibious landings near Odesa when Russian forces have secured or are close to securing a reliable ground route from Crimea to Odesa.
    • The Kremlin dramatically limited Russia’s already isolated domestic information environment and criminalized unfavorable coverage of the war in Ukraine on March 4, setting conditions to improve the domestic efficacy of its information operations.
    • Ukraine is attempting to increase the flow of information about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to Russian citizens to increase domestic Russian opposition to the war.
    • The Kremlin set conditions to justify potential Russian conscriptions and more aggressive operations in Ukraine.
    • The Russian Defense Ministry said foreign citizens fighting for Ukraine will not be considered legal combatants and will not be protected under international law.
    • Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko reiterated that Belarus will not enter the war in Ukraine but has likely already committed Belarusian troops.
    • NATO rejected Ukraine’s request to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
    • Russia has not yet followed through on its agreement with Ukraine to establish the humanitarian corridors that would enable civilian supply and evacuation.
    • The US Department of Defense established a deconfliction line with its Russian counterpart to prevent accidental escalation near the Ukrainian and Belarusian borders.
    • Finland and Sweden continued high-level discussions on NATO membership and multilateral defense measures.
