Russia launches S-300 missiles at Zaporizhzhia, causing significant infrastructure damage
Overnight, Russia attacked Zaporizhzhia using S-300 missiles, damaging key infrastructure. The occupiers targeted the outskirts of the city, causing partial destruction and igniting fires in the affected areas
Alisa Sysoyeva, a journalist and member of the Zaporizhzhia District Council, shared this information on Espreso.
"It was a turbulent night for Zaporizhzhia. Around 11:00 p.m., monitoring groups detected the movement of S-300 missiles in the Berdyansk district. At approximately 2:00 a.m., a series of powerful explosions were heard, with three powerful blasts resonating across the city. Unfortunately, the air raid siren sounded only after the explosions. Details regarding casualties are still being confirmed," Sysoyeva reported.
She also noted that the number of attacks on the Zaporizhzhia region has been on the rise in recent days, often exceeding 100 incidents per day.
"Regrettably, we witness injuries and casualties on a weekly basis. The Zaporizhzhia area, situated on the front lines, is consistently subjected to attacks. Even when the city of Zaporizhzhia itself isn't affected daily, the surrounding Zaporizhzhia district experiences relentless shelling. The logic behind these attacks is unexplainable," she added.
On October 15, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported that Russia launched 2 missile strikes, 43 air attacks, and 59 MLRS attacks on Ukrainian troops and civilian areas throughout the day. These Russian attacks have resulted in casualties and injuries among the civilian population.
