The summary of the situation of Russian re-invasion to Ukraine covering the last 48 hours, as of 31st October 2022 – 22:00 (Kyiv time).


Ukrainian Army managed to advance closer to the road connecting Svatove and Kreminna in Luhansk Oblast and continue to be successful in repelling Russian attacks across the front.

Russian forces have shifted its primary focus to Avdiivka, with the goal to encircle Ukrainian troops stationed in the town. However, as Ukrainian defense is holding very well and there are many fortified positions in the area, Russians are unlikely to achieve this goal.

Russian army also probed Ukrainian defense north of Kharkiv, in the vicinity of Zelene settlement. The defenders repelled the attempt.
