In the afternoon, the occupiers shelled the streets of Energodar with artillery.
According to him, the occupiers deliberately fired at the first neighborhood of Energodar, specifically targeting the street where many civilians walk.
“The Russians aimed at the pedestrian street, where there are always many people. Also, the first neighborhood was chosen for a reason – the Russians did not settle there. It is a quiet five-story neighborhood in the city. Their tactics in relation to Energodar have changed. There is no longer a goal to “make friends,” Yevtushenko wrote. .
He also added that he received information from a subscriber that after the shelling of the Energodar neighborhood, locals began to gather at the scene.
“There were people there who said ‘they fired from the direction of Nikopol’. Presumably, the Rashists set up “non-locals” to spread anti-Ukrainian rumours,” he noted.
By in words the mayor of Energodar Dmytro Orlov, as of 17-20 it is known that a man who was walking his dog at the time died as a result of shelling in the first micro-district. The animal also died on the spot.
