The aim of a talk is to give an overview current state gravitational wave observations.  During three science runs (2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2019-2020) of Advanced LIGO-Virgo detectors multiple binary merger events were observed. Most of the events are binary black hole mergers, but nine detected events had neutron star component. Those observations, especially GW170817, brought additional way to study neutron stars. Data that being gathered by LIGO-Virgo detectors could be used to constrain neutron star equation of state.
