"Near the military unit, which has been shelled for months, there was a warehouse of old anti-ship mines from the Second World War, they were filled with concrete and the burial ground was made. There were a lot of them, filled in God knows when. For some reason, the Russians decided that it was an ammunition depot and bravely fired there, long and tedious, and yesterday, two expensive Kinzhal broke through a metre of concrete to blow up the mines of the Second World War," the head of the Military Administration said.
Kim also noted that "the only thing they did was to leave half of Ochakiv without windows and roofs and caused panic in Mykolaiv".
