“As a result of a direct Russian hit to the point of delivery of humanitarian aid in the premises of the school, a social worker was killed, and two more women were injured,” said the head of the Zaporizhzhia Oblast Military Administration.
According to Oleksandr Starukh, the number of victims could have been much higher, but they were prevented thanks to the correct organization of work on providing aid, avoiding queues and gatherings of people, and the presence of equipped shelters nearby.
The day before, Russian troops launched a rocket attack on one of the communities of the Zaporizhzhia district of the region. Residential buildings were destroyed and damaged.
