The summary of the 226th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 7th October 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

The situation south of Bakmut is getting complicated. Russian forces, after months of trying, managed to advance and capture at least two settlements.

Ukrainian forces liberated another bunch of villages in Kharkiv and Kherson Oblast, but the pace has slowed down. It’s logical. The spearheading units needs to resupply, rest and most importantly, the rear units need to secure the liberated areas and set up all necessary defensive positions to be ready in case of Russian counter-attack.

Sloboda Front

includes the area of between Oskil and Aydar river

Kupyansk direction

  • Ukrainian Army continues to clear and secure settlements alongside Oskil river. They recently announced the liberation of Hlushkivka.

  • Ukrainian forces repelled a Russian attack in the vicinity of Yakovlivka.
  • Fighting continues on the streets of Bakhmutske and Soledar.
  • The enemy pushed south of Bakhmutske and attacked Ukrainian positions in the direction of Krasna Hora. The attack was repulsed.
  • Russian forces advanced by a few meters towards Bakhmut.
  • The enemy entered Vesela Dolyna and the nearby Zaitseve. Ukrainian forces reportedly retreated from both settlements amid the worsening situation. However, as we lack evidence that Russian forces are indeed in full control of the said settlements, they are marked as contested for now.
  • Russian sources reported the capture of Odradivka and Mykolaivka Druha. This was indirectly confirmed by Ukrainian General Staff, because they reported a repelled attack in the direction of Andriivka.
  • Ukrainian defenders repelled Russian attacks towards Kurdyumivka, Mayorsk and in the area of Zaitseve (southern one).
