The Kyiv offensive was a theater (warfare), during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine (which is ongoing, as of 2022's second quarter). The goal of the Kyiv offensive, was control of the capital city of Ukraine, Kyiv and the surrounding province (or oblast).

On the morning of 24 February, Russian Armed Forces entered the oblast and were engaged by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.[10][11]

Ukraine's military command and government is (in the 2020s) based in the oblast.
