Cubic kilometer scale neutrino telescope Baikal-GVD is currently under construction in Lake Baikal. The detector is specially designed
for search for high energies neutrinos whose sources are not yet reliably identified. Since April 2019 the telescope has been successfully
operated in complex of five functionally independent clusters i.e. sub-arrays of optical modules where now are hosted 1440 OMs
on 40 vertical strings. Each cluster is connected to shore by individual electro-optical cables. The effective volume of the detector
for neutrino initiated cascades of relativistic particles with energy above 100 TeV has been increased up to about 0.25 km$^3$.
Preliminary results with data samples of 2015-2018 years are discussed.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
