61 attacks by Putin's forces. The average number of attacks is moving upwards and upwards.
I think Putin was expecting the EU to cave in on sanctions. But this didn't happen. So now he is steadily increasing the amount of fighting.  
Officially - two soldiers wounded yesterday.

Cold. Wow. 15C at 0800 this morning. A real shock, after two weeks of 22 or so. And highs around 30.
Today - maybe high in the low 20s. And also cloudy. A real contrast.
