kyiv strikes the city of Melitopol in the Zaporozhye region, two civilians killed, injured (VIDEO) – RT in French
The Ukrainian army carried out strikes on the city of Melitopol in the Zaporozhye region which Moscow now considers an integral part of its territory. At least two civilians were killed.
At least two civilians died and three others injured in a Ukrainian strike on “civilian infrastructure” in Melitopol in the Zaporozhye region on December 10, the region’s health department reported, quoted by the Russian agency. Interfax.
“According to preliminary data, the shelling of civilian infrastructure in the city of Melitopol caused several civilian casualties: two people were killed, three people were injured,” the department wrote on its Telegram channel. It is indicated there that the wounded in serious condition were taken care of at the regional hospital of Melitopol. The city administration announced earlier that the hotel complex “Prival okhotnika” (Hunter’s stop), had been targeted by missile fire.
The Russian army entered Melitopol as soon as the operation in Ukraine began in February. It was attached to the territory of Russia after a referendum on September 30, at the same time as the people’s republics of Donbass and the Kherson region. Neither kyiv nor the West recognize the validity of these referendums and these territorial changes. The Ukrainian president has set himself the goal of regaining all the territories that kyiv controlled until 2014, including Crimea.
On December 7, the Russian president accused kyiv of deliberately targeting residential areas in the Donbass. “Everyone is silent, as if nothing is happening. Of course, it’s terrible,” he said again, presumably in reference to Westerners. The day before, the authorities of the Donetsk region had reported ten wounded and a woman dead in strikes on the Vorochilovsky district in the center of the city of Donetsk. Ukrainian artillery regularly targets the city with fire causing numerous casualties.
