War in Ukraine today: latest news, November 04, 2022 (photo)

It has been the 254th day of the Ukrainian resistance to the russian military aggression. 

What happened in Ukraine today:

Here is operational information of the General Staff as of 6 pm: 

The enemy is trying to keep the temporarily captured territories, focusing efforts on restraining the actions of the Defense Forces in certain directions. At the same time, the enemy launches offensive operations towards Bakhmut and Avdiivka.

The enemy is firing at the units of the Armed Forces along the front line, erecting defensive constructions in some directions and conducting the aerial reconnaissance. They continue to hit the critical infrastructure and civilian homes by violating the International humanitarian laws, conventions and customs of war. 

The enemy launched 3 missiles and 5 air strikes, 2 multi rocket launcher attacks. Settlements of Lviv, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia regions suffered from enemy strikes. The territory of Ukraine is exposed to the threat of new strikes and use of attack UAVs, specifically from the territory of the republic of belarus.

The situation did not significantly change towards Volyn and Polissia.  The republic of belarus continues to support the russian armed aggression against Ukraine. 

In other directions, the enemy fired towards:

Siversk with barrel artillery, in the area of  settlement Tymonovichiv, Chernihiv oblast;

Sloboda with mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Ambarne, Bolohivka, Stelmakhivka, Vovchanski Khutory, Hlyboke, Dvorichna, Zelene, Hatysche and Chuhunivka;

Kupiansk and Lyman with artillery of various types, in the areas of settlements Novoiehorivka, Siversk, Verkhniokamianske, Vedmezhe and Bilohorivka;

Bakhmut with mortars and barrel and rocket artillery in the areas of settlements of Bilohorivka, Bakhmut, Andriivka, Klishchiivka and Ivanhrad;

Avdiivka with tanks and all the types of artillery in the areas of settlements of Avdiivka, Maryinka, Novomykhailivka and Paraskoviivka;

Novopavlivka with artillery of various calibers in the areas of settlements Vodiane, Uhledar, Pavlivka, Vremivka and Velyka Novosilka;

Zaporizhzhia with mortars and barrel and rocket artillery in the areas of settlements of Poltavka, Huliaipole, Zaliznychne, Huliaipilske, Dorozhnianka, Novoandriivka and Olhivske.

Settlements along the front line towards the South Buh along the front line were hit. The settlements of Trifonivka, Kherson oblast, and Nikopol were hit with rocket and barrel artillery.

The occupiers are being eliminated in Ukraine. The information on the enemy’s losses resulting from shelling of the administrative building in Hola Prystan, Kherson oblast, has been confirmed. 18 russian invaders were killed, 2 wounded.

In addition, on November 2, S-300 anti-aircraft missile system and an ammunition truck were destroyed. About 20 invaders were wounded with various degrees of severity in the area of the city of Enerhodar, Zaporizhzhia region.

About 50 invaders were wounded and up to 10 pieces of military equipment were destroyed. In addition, about 80 units of various types of military equipment, stored in hangars, were damaged.

According to the available information, in the settlement of Kamianka, Zaporizhzhia region, the enemy moved its units’ personnel, closed checkpoints and the commander’s office.

The personnel of the enemy units, stationed in Zaporizhzhia region, have low morale and psychological state. It is caused by poor living conditions, faulty equipment, constant delays and incomplete payments of financial support, as well as contemptuous attitude of the military leadership towards subordinates.

Aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine launched 4 strikes. 2 areas of buildup of weapons and military equipment, a support point and 2 positions of the enemy’s anti-aircraft missile systems were hit.  In addition, air defense units shot down 2  “Shahed-136” UAVs.

The rocket and artillery forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine hit a control point, 5 areas of buildup of manpower, weapons and military equipment and a number of other important military facilities of the enemy.

According to mayor of Melitopol Ivan Fedorov, russians nationalize the property of Ukrainians. Gauleiter Yevhenii Balytskyi is compiling an inventory list of state, communal, private enterprises, houses, apartments, and cars in the temporarily occupied part of Zaporizhzhia oblast. As Ivan Fedorov noted, properties of 47 city health care facilities are included in this list. 

Based on the website of the official web resource of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy supported the petition banning russian citizens from carrying out any creative activities on the territory of Ukraine. In addition, the broadcast of television and film content, created with the participation of russians in Ukraine, is proposed to be banned.
