Explosions in Melitopol affect depot used by Russians to repair military equipment – mayor

This morning at least six explosions have occurred within a locomotive depot in the Zaporizhzhia region’s temporarily occupied city of Melitopol, which is used by Russian troops to repair their military equipment.

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

“Around 09:30 a.m., at least six explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied city of Melitopol. All of them occurred within a Melitopol-based depot, where the enemy had set up its military equipment repair base, as well as fuel and ammunition stocks,” Fedorov told.

In his words, this is the second series of explosions that have occurred this week. The first explosions were reported on Monday.

According to Fedorov, the earlier explosions completely destroyed the roof in one of the depot’s production shops, having caused damage to the military equipment under repairs. This refers to dozens of military equipment units. Additionally, dozens of Russian soldiers were eliminated.

As for the explosions that have occurred this morning, the enemy’s losses are yet to be checked, Fedorov added.
