Quote from Fedorov: “Last night, high-precision HIMARS missiles hit the temporary deployment points of the occupying Russian forces at industrial facilities in several districts of Melitopol, causing fire damage.
Early reports indicate that a large amount of [Russian] military equipment was destroyed. Over 100 Russian soldiers, who spent the night in temporary barracks [at these locations], received their tickets for the concert by Iosif Kobzon [i.e. H. were killed; Iosif Kobzon was a Russian singer who has become a symbol of an outdated Soviet aesthetic; he died in 2018 - ed.]; her parents are already choosing the make and color of their Lada cars [refers to an interview with a grieving mother and father who proudly bought a new Lada car with the "coffin money" given to them after the death of their son was given in Ukraine. The interview was broadcast on Russia-1 as part of a propaganda package about how the Kremlin is helping families of dead soldiers. Red.].

Details: Fedorov said that the Russian armed forces moved a significant part of their air defense systems from Melitopol to Kherson last week.
The mayor added that last night was the most productive for Ukrainian troops in the region; Russian air defense systems are no longer able to withstand the Ukrainian HIMARS attacks.
He believes that this creates favorable conditions for a successful counteroffensive on the Melitopol front.
