THE War Mapper relatively objectively, it follows the events of the front line based on the geolocation of battlefield recordings. According to Russian bloggers, the Wagner group broke into the city center a few days ago and besieged the city hall, War Mapper has not yet shown this on its map. According to them, the Russians are still three streets away from the city center.

The map maker was blamed by some commentators for not including the alleged advance of Wagner in the city center. War Mapper cited that there is still no evidence of this.
On the map of the Russian Rybar, a slightly larger area is under Russian control in the area of the city center, but at the same time, according to them, the siege of the city hall has not even begun.

At the same time, it can be seen on both maps: the movement space of the Ukrainian soldiers has been radically reduced in recent weeks, the defenders have been forced into the western part of the city, while Wagner is attacking from the north and the south.
