I will be gone all day today so I will make this one short. So far, and regardless of the hilarious misrepresentation of the events in the western MSM, the Ukrainian attack as failed everywhere. Peski has been partially taken by the Novorussians (helped by Serbian volunteers), Ukrainians forces around Mariupol are on the retreat and the overall intensity of combats is "medium". For details, the best I can offer is the report of the always excellent Colonel Cassad:

Sorry, this is the best I can do at this moment as I am about to hit the road for the rest of the day.
I will try to produce a halfway decent SITREP tonight if I am not too exhausted.
PS: great drawing on Cassad's blog:
