Mayor: ‘Hundreds’ of Russian soldiers may have been killed in Ukrainian strike on occupied Melitopol

March 6, 2023

Exiled Mayor of Melitopol Ivan Fedorov said in an interview on TV on March 5 that two powerful explosions were heard in the northern part of the occupied city of Melitopol in Zaporizhzhia Oblast, possibly killing hundreds of Russian soldiers stationed in the city. 

“In occupied Melitopol, powerful explosions are heard, two enemy bases were destroyed,” Fedorov said.  

According to the mayor, Russian losses as a result of the strike “amount to hundreds of people, but the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will provide more detailed information.”

“Today is a weekend of hell for them, just like the whole last week of hell,” Fedorov also said.

The city of Melitopol, with a pre-war population of 150,000 people, was occupied on Feb. 26 of last year, just two days after the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion. 

Since November last year, Russian soldiers arriving from recently liberated parts of Kherson Oblast and the city of Tokmak in Zaporizhzhia Oblast have turned Melitopol into a military base.


  1. This newest update on the strike in Melitopol sounds promising. The cockroaches had created another roach hotel, so it seems, making it easier to kill many at once.

  2. This is really good news that strikes at a distance are continuing with regularity. I eagerly await the GLSDBs to compliment this.

    With sufficient numbers, the GLSDBs will deplete Russian air defenses unless they get aid.

  3. Too bad there is so little footage.
    it must have been real nice to see the himars, i mean justice, coming for them.

    i think we should send all Russians goPro camera’s so we can see their demise from their own perspective.
