The situation in the Zaporizhzhia region

Russian troops occupied the territories along the Azov Sea in the first months of the full-scale invasion. The cities of Melitopol, Berdiansk, and Tokmak became the main Russian strongholds.

It is worth noting that explosions have recently become more frequent in occupied Melitopol. According to the locals, the occupiers feel uneasy in the city because the Armed Forces of Ukraine have weapons that can reach them.

Recently, guerrillas in Melitopol blew up the headquarters of Russian terrorists. The explosion killed three Russian officers.
