Ukraine hits Russian-held city of Melitopol, deep behind front

Ukraine struck a railway depot and knocked out power in the Russian-occupied city of Melitopol, deep behind the front line, on Wednesday (29 March) amid growing talk from Kyiv of a counterassault against Russian forces worn out by a failed winter offensive.

Unverified images on the internet showed explosions lighting up the night sky with streaks of contrails in Melitopol, base of the occupation administration in Zaporizhzhia, one of five Ukrainian provinces Russia claims to have annexed.

In the early morning in Melitopol there was a series of strikes. Place where the strike was confirmed is the locomotive depot. pic.twitter.com/mobx36h06t
