Quote: "Twice tonight, first at approximately 00:40 and then between 3:40 and 04:20 in the temporarily occupied city of Enerhodar, drones attacked the building of the Security Service of Ukraine, which was occupied by Russian military personnel. A direct hit to the building was reported."

Details: RIA Novosti reported that "Ukrainian drones dropped 2 mines on a building near the Zaporizhzhia NPP; there were no casualties."

It is worth noting that the occupiers withhold any information about casualties among their military.


The propaganda publication also published a photo from the attacked SSU building.

Later, the mayor of Enerhodar, Dmytro Orlov, said that the "attack" on the SSU building and the subsequent firing in the air on the streets of the city were a provocation by the invaders themselves.

According to Orlov, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are aware that the invaders are no longer using the building, so they had no reason to attack it. 

Orlov suggests that Russian military personnel who fire on their own premises may do this to "justify" the shelling of settlements on the opposite bank of the Dnipro, or to show that they are supposedly "engaging in night battles with the Ukrainian army in order to stay longer in the city and not get sent to the front line on rotation."


On 9 July, two explosions occurred in Mariupol - in the area of the Illich Iron and Steel Works and in the Azovstal area.
