And when almost 54% of the amount was accumulated, someone made a huge contribution to the initiative's account: + 100,000,000 UAH! Just imagine this figure: plus UAH 100 million in a moment! And how can you not believe in a miracle after that?" the foundation reports.

In Melitopol, guerrillas blew up a train that was delivering fuel and ammunition to the occupying Russian forces
On December 15, in Melitopol, the resistance movement successfully sabotaged and blew up a railway train that was transporting ammunition and fuel from Crimea to Melitopol and Dniprorudne on a daily basis. This was reported by the National Resistance Center.
On the way back, this train was transporting ore, grain and damaged equipment from the temporarily occupied territories. However, thanks to the heroes of the underground, the train finally completed its journey.
The controlled explosion damaged the railroad and a diesel locomotive with cars. The explosion itself occurred at 8 a.m. right under the noses of Russian FSB officers. Currently, the invading forces have cordoned off the explosion site and are searching the surrounding area.
The occupation administration is trying to conceal the fact of sabotage, while the Russians are unsuccessfully searching for guerrillas. Federal Reserve employees, traitors from the police, dog handlers and even experts from a criminal laboratory are involved.
According to the National Resistance Center, this is the eleventh successful railroad sabotage in 2023. The Resistance Movement successfully blew up the previous train on October 13.
