Here is operational information of the General Staff as of 18.00: 

The enemy attempts to hold the ground in the temporarily occupied territories and focuses on thwarting the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in certain directions. They are sporadically launching offensive actions towards Bakhmut and Avdiivka.

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation didn’t significantly change. The measures on troop inspection will be taken until October 15 in Belarus. The airspace closure was extended in the southern parts of this country.
