Quote from Chudnovets: "This was one of the city’s largest shopping centres, with an area of over 5,100 square metres. It provided essential goods for all the nearby towns and villages. It has not stopped operating since the beginning of the full-scale war.

This is the sixth [Epitsentr] store that has been destroyed [by Russian forces]."

Details: Russian forces carried out two other attacks on Nikopol on 6 March, deploying heavy artillery and a kamikaze drone.

Six private residential houses, three outbuildings, a car, and a power line were damaged [as a result of Russian attacks]."
