“It was very loud in the southern part of the city today at 5 AM. According to preliminary reports, a part of the Refma factory, which was captured by the Russians and served as one of the main personnel headquarters of the occupants, was destroyed,” Fedorov wrote.

Anton Herashchenko, official advisor at the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, claims that “three top floors of the building that housed the Russian top brass FSB office are ruined.” According to him, “the building rubble scattered around two blocks of the city, while the targeted site is now guarded by the Russian military and representatives of the so-called ‘militia’.”

Melitopol’s occupation “authorities” reported that city is not in any danger and attributed the clearly audible blasts to air defense systems’ operation.

Meanwhile, representative of the occupation “authorities” of the Kherson region Kirill Stremousov reported about the recent shelling of Hola Prystan.

“The Hola Prystan administration was shelled last night. No one was injured in the attack. The building is ruined completely,” he informed.
