Situation report day 224

By Jordi Bou

October 5, 2022 - Russian President Vladimir Putin formalised the annexation of four Ukrainian regions despite major battlefield reversals in recent days shrinking the amount of seized territory Moscow controls, Reuters reports.

Putin has now signed off on a law formally incorporating the four regions, representing about 18% of Ukraine’s territory, into Russia, the state-owned TASS news agency reported.

Ukrainian forces have liberated a key village in the southern region of Kherson, hastening another Russian military retreat.

The defence ministry in Kyiv posted a video showing the 35th marine brigade hoisting a Ukrainian flag above Davydiv Brid, amid reports of several other nearby villages being recaptured.
