After the liberation of Liman, Ukrainian troops continued their offensive in the north of the Luhansk region. Gaidai, in an interview with Donbass Realia, said earlier that the enemy is actively mining the territory on the front line, digging in and pulling up reserves in the Kremennaya area.
On October 5, Gaidai reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had liberated six settlements in the region and wrote that people in the territories that Russia had seized back in 2014 were waiting for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Gaidai also recommended that the residents of the Luhansk region, who are now under occupation, move away from the front line or stay close to shelters, avoiding dangers if possible.
On October 4, pro-Russian Telegram channels reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had broken through Russian defenses in the north of the Kherson region.
The head of the Lugansk regional military administration, Sergei Gaidai, said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had liberated seven settlements in the region. These are Novolyubovka, Nevskoye, Grekovka, Novogorovka, Nadia, Andreevka and Stelmakhovka.
