As the Russia-Ukraine war enters its 286th day, we take a look at the main events.

Here is the situation as it is on Tuesday, December 6:

Struggle

  • A third Russian airfield is on fire from a drone strike, a day after Ukraine demonstrated an apparent new ability to penetrate hundreds of kilometers into Russian airspace with strikes on two Russian airbases.
  • A drone struck an airfield in Russia’s Kursk region, bordering Ukraine, setting an oil storage tank on fire.
  • Russia said three of its military personnel were killed in what it said were Ukrainian drone strikes on two Russian airbases hundreds of kilometers from the front line in Ukraine. Kyiv did not directly claim responsibility.
  • Ukraine’s military intelligence chief said Russia had enough high-precision missiles to carry out several major airstrikes in Ukraine before they ran out.
  • Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said Ukraine was continuing to shell the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, deliberately creating the threat of a possible nuclear disaster. Ukraine denies shelling the Russian-controlled facility.
  • Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited troops near the front lines in the eastern Donbas region to mark the country’s Armed Forces Day.
  • Russia and Ukraine said they exchanged 60 prisoners of war from each side in the latest in a series of such exchanges.
