Thick smoke was rising in the lower part of the city behind the central market in the area of the occupied Refma plant, where they [Russian troops – ed.] have set up their military base."

Details: The mayor noted that no explosions were heard in the morning, so he assumed that the occupiers "fell asleep holding a lit cigarette".

Information about what exactly happened in Melitopol is being established.
