Russian Control of Dnipro on June 1, 2023

Trustworthy News Ukraine Conflict Improve the News


Dnipro experienced its first missile attack in early March 2022 since the beginning of the Russo-Ukrainian war in February, resulting in at least one death. Former NATO commander in Europe, Wesley Clark said on CNN on April 3, 2022, "[...] the Russians are north and south of Dnipro. Dnipro is going to be the next key objective. If they can drive to Dnipro they'll cut off the Ukrainian forces that are holding back the separatists in the Donbas."

Will Dnipro be under Russian control on June 1, 2023?

This question will resolve as "Yes" if more than 50% of Dnipro's raions are under de facto Russian military control on June 1, 2023.

To determine the extent of Russian control, Metaculus Admins will consider all relevant sources, including government intelligence statements and credible media reports.
