The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not record any offensive actions in the Kupyansk sector over the past day.

According to the report, Kupyansk, Ivanivka and Cherneshchyna in Kharkiv region were subjected to air strikes. In addition, more than 100 settlements in Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions were shelled with artillery.

On the Siverskyi and Slobozhanskyi directions, the Russian army maintains a military presence in the border areas, conducts active sabotage activities to prevent the Ukrainian military from deploying troops to threatened areas, and continues to mine the territory along the state border in Belgorod region.


Constant missile attacks and empty streets: how Kupyansk lives on the front line. This city in Kharkiv Oblast is 10-15 km/ 6–9 miles from the front line and 40 km/ 25 miles from the border with Russia. The city was severely damaged at the beginning of the full-scale invasion and during the battle for its liberation in September 2022. Today, it is constantly under fire from Russian aviation, MLRS and S-300 systems.

The Russian army renewed their offensive on the Lyman-Kupiansk axis. The Defence forces are repelling the adversary’s attacks and hitting Russians’ ammunition depots and fuel storages. A spokesman for Ukraine’s Eastern Group of Forces, Ilya Yevlash, reported on it during a national telemarathon on September 30.
