Details: It is reported that as of 4 October, Russian troops have almost completely withdrawn from Kharkiv Oblast and retreated in the north of Kherson Oblast.

According to the presented map, Russia still has control over a small territory to the north-east of Dvorichne village in Kharkiv Oblast. The previous day, the Ministry of Defence of Russia stated that Russia controlled the whole territory of Kharkiv Oblast to the east of Oskil river. 

It means that from 3 to 4 October, the Armed Forces of Ukraine liberated approximately two-thirds of the Russia-controlled territories in the Oblast. 


The map also shows the retreat of Russian troops in the north of Kherson Oblast. The previous day, the front line on the map ran near the settlements of Davydiv Brid, Dobrianka, and Zolota Balka. On 4 October, the Defence Ministry showed that the Russian army controlled the territory approximately up to the line between Davydiv Brid and Dudchany.

Thus, the front line in this region has moved to the south by approximately 30 kilometres.
