    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 01 November 2022 19:11

    The two hundred fifty-first (251) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.

    The enemy is trying to keep the temporarily captured territories, concentrates efforts on restraining the actions of the Defense Forces in certain directions. Conducts offensive actions in the Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Novopavlivsky directions.

    The enemy is shelling units of the Defense Forces along the contact line, carrying out border fortification equipment in separate directions and conducting aerial reconnaissance. It continues to strike critical infrastructure and civilian homes in violation of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of war.

    During the day, the enemy launched 4 missile and 26 air strikes, carried out more than 27 MLRS attacks.

    Areas of more than 20 settlements were hit by enemy attacks. Among them are Mykilske of the Zaporizhzhia oblast, Poltava, Kramatorsk, Nikopol and Mykolaiv.

    The threat of new strikes and the use of attack drones remains, in particular from the territory of the republic of belarus.

    The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly. The republic of belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine.

    The enemy shelled in other directions:

    in the Siversky direction - from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Senkivka and Hai settlements of Chernihiv oblast, as well as Oleksandrivka and Vovkivka of Sumy oblast;

    Areas of settlements near the contact line were damaged by fire in the South Buh direction. The city of Nikopol was hit by enemy MLRS.

    The occupiers continue to forcibly relocate the civilian population in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson oblast. The enemy is resorting to intimidation of civilian residents, spreading information about the possible undermining of the Kakhovska HPP dam. At the same time, the local population is deprived of means of communication.

    The russian occupation administration of Kherson was moved to the city of Skadovsk.

    The occupying command is trying to compensate for the constant loss of personnel in enemy units that take direct part in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine with mobilized servicemen. With those who refuse to participate in combat operations, the so-called "work" is carried out by the employees of the fsb of the russian federation.

    According to updated information, the destruction of the enemy's ammunition depots in the Zaporizhzhia region was confirmed on October 29. In addition, 5 units of military equipment were destroyed as a result of fire damage to the concentration areas of the Russian occupiers. Losses of personnel are up to 30 eliminated and about 100 wounded.

    During the current day, the aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine carried out 22 strikes. 19 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as 3 positions of the enemy's anti-aircraft missile systems, were affected. In different directions, our air defense units shot down two Orlan-10 UAVs and six Shahed-136 attack drones.

    Units of missile troops and artillery hit two areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, an ammunition warehouse and four other important military objects of the enemy during the day.

    Believe in the Armed Forces! We will win! Glory to Ukraine!
