Russian military base, FSB dining place blown up in Melitopol – Mayor Fedorov

A series of explosions has recently taken place in the temporarily occupied city of Melitopol. Ukrainian partisans destroyed an enemy military base, ammunition depot and a place, where Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) officers used to have dinner.

The relevant statement was made by Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov during a nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to Fedorov, four explosions rocked Melitopol at 05:00 p.m. yesterday.

“A small but very important military unit was affected. Now we are waiting for this information to be officially confirmed. Secondly, an ammunition depot was blown up in the village of Mykhailivka, which is 20 kilometers away from Melitopol. Enemy forces came to check the effects, and another explosion took place,” Fedorov told.

Ukrainian partisans also blew up a hotel, where Russian occupiers were having dinner. The explosion took place, as 5-6 cars of Russia’s FSB officers were parked near Citadel Hotel.

A reminder that, reportedly, Russian occupiers deployed four or five military bases within the city of Melitopol. In addition, enemy barracks are located in schools (No. 5, 13, 16).
