Posting on his Telegram channel he wrote: “It’s a loud night in Zaporizhzhia! Around 10:57pm today, a series of explosions sounded in the regional centre temporarily occupied by the Zelenskyy regime. After which a siren sounded”.
He continued: “As my fellow Zaporizhzhia residents tell me, they have never heard such a large number of arrivals and the voluminous sound of explosions before. Most likely they were multiple rocket launchers that had fired on the Ukrainian armed forces’ firing positions in the city”.
“The second wave of explosions began around 00:37. The siren traditionally went off after the first of them. According to preliminary information, the target of the arrivals was military equipment and ammunition depots, as well as the locations of Zelenskyy’s fighters. More details later. The city of Zaporizhzhia was and will be free!”, he concluded.
