The Institute for the Study of War reports.

Geolocated footage published on November 1 indicates that Ukrainian forces advanced further northeast of the railway line near Klishchiivka (7km southwest of Bakhmut).

Instead, the Ukrainian General Staff reported that the Defense Forces continued their offensive south of Bakhmut, and the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that the invaders had repelled several Ukrainian assault groups near Klishchiivka.

The Russian propagandist claimed that Ukrainian forces were breaking through Russian defenses east of Andriivka.

Ukraine's General Staff reported that Russian troops made 15 unsuccessful attempts to regain lost positions near Khromove, Klishchiivka, and Andriivka, and that Ukrainian troops repelled Russian assaults near Pivdenne.

Kherson region

Ukrainian forces hold their positions and continue offensive actions on the left bank of the Kherson region. Russian propagandists claim that the Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked near Poima and Pishchanivka and advanced near Krynky.

Another Russian milblogger claimed that Ukrainian forces temporarily advanced westward from central Krynky but that Russian forces pushed Ukrainian forces back to their original positions and gained a foothold east of the settlement.

Ukrainian military observer Kostyantyn Mashovets stated that Ukrainian forces maintain positions near Krynky and the Antonivsky road and railway bridges. According to him, the Russian forces unsuccessfully attacked near the Antonivsky railway bridge and towards Krynky from Korsunka (45km northeast of Kherson City and 1km from the Dnipro River).

Operation on the left bank of the Kherson region

On September 14 and 15, Ukrainian troops crossed the Dnipro River, presumably to consolidate their positions and prepare for an offensive on the left bank of the Kherson region. The Russian forces claim that the Ukrainian Armed Forces have been preparing to cross the Dnipro since July.

On September 20, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported on new footholds of the Defense Forces on the left bank of the Dnipro.

The Institute for the Study of War said that units of two Ukrainian marine brigades probably crossed the Dnipro River on October 17-18 and landed on the left bank of the river in Kherson region.

On October 20, ISW stated that the Ukrainian offensive on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region appears to be larger than previous raids. Geolocation footage shows that the Ukrainian Armed Forces maintain a presence along the Dnipro bank and near the Antonivskyi Bridge. On the same day, Zelenskyy came to the Kherson region to hold a meeting and present awards.

On October 21, ISW reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to conduct larger-than-usual ground operations on the left bank of the Kherson region. In particular, Ukrainian soldiers are fighting in the village of Krynky. 

Also, according to the spokesperson of the Southern Defense Forces, Natalia Humeniuk, in order to "make life easier" on the right bank of the Dnipro RIver, it is necessary to clear a part of the left bank, which remains under fire from the Russian troops.

As of November 1, Ukrainian troops were trying to break through Russian defenses near Pishchanivka and Poima. The Ukrainian Armed Forces also hold positions in Krynky and near Antonivsky highway.
