Details: The General Staff further reported that the occupation authorities in the temporarily Russian-occupied territory of Kherson Oblast are trying to make the territories under their control unfit for life.
For example, they disabled the Internet to access in Nova Kakhovka on October 29, 2022 and have since used loudspeakers throughout the city to urge local residents to leave Kherson Oblast within 48 hours, saying there is a threat that Ukrainian armed forces will carry out missile strikes in the region. Medical staff from local hospitals and workers from municipal emergency response services are on the front line for the so-called “evacuation”.
In addition, the occupation authorities issued a decree obliging local traders to sell all food products and close shops and markets from November 1 2022.

There were no significant changes to the fronts of Volyn and Polissia. The Republic of Belarus continues to aid and support Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine. The Russian Federation continues to transfer its troops to the territory of Belarus.
