Russia changes logistics, moving weapons closer to Sea of Azov — Melitopol mayor
Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov noted that Russians have deployed a huge number of training bases on the Azov coast
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"The invaders are using Melitopol airfield as a warehouse for transshipment of ammunition, personnel, heavy weapons and helicopters. But the invaders are changing their logistics, moving their ammunition depots and heavy weapons closer to the Azov coast. They believe that the rear is deeper there, and therefore it will be harder for Ukraine's army to reach it," noted Fedorov.
According to the mayor, the invaders are deploying their personnel at recreation centers and camps built on the Azov coast.
"A huge number of Russian training bases have been deployed on the territory of Kyrylivka, Pryazovske, Prymorske, between Berdyansk and Mariupol, where Russia is accumulating its reserves to be moved to the Zaporizhzhia front line," emphasized Fedorov.
Over the past day, Ukrainian troops repelled Russian attacks at the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Marinka, Shakhtarsk and Kupyansk directions. At the same time, the Ukrainian Armed Forces eliminated 800 invaders.
Yevhen Balytskyi, the governor of the temporarily occupied territory of Zaporizhzhia region, "signed" a pseudo-decree on the curfew regime from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
