How can I make such cutouts in the cylinder in blender? Boolean operations? Or there is an easier way to do this?

Thank you!

I change my answer because the first one was a bit tedious, beginning with knife, digging a hole then making a circle with the extrusion is much faster:

  • Create a cylinder, mirror it, cut an oblique edge with the knife, bevel it several times, cut a hole.

enter image description here

  • Extrude, the hole, make it a circle with ShiftAltS, use LoopTools > Space if you need the circle vertices to be regularly spaced.

enter image description here

  • Cut the top part, keep only a half circle, extrude the left and right edge and join the vertices to circle's vertices.

enter image description here

  • Extrude down, fill the bottom of the extrusion. Give a Subdivision Surface modifier to your object. Add extra edge loops to sharp the edges.
