Russian forces hit a humanitarian convoy in Zaporizhzhia
On September 30, Russia launched 16 S-300 missiles at Zaporizhzhia. A car market area and a convoy of civilian cars on the outskirts of the city were hit. “People were queueing in order to enter the temporarily occupied territory to pick up their relatives or deliver humanitarian aid,” explained Oleksandr Starukh, the Head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration.
32 people were killed, including an 11-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, and 86 were injured as a result of the attack.
“At the moment, we know that Russian forces hit people with modernized S-300 missiles. The craters left by these modified missiles are not very deep, but the radius of their blast wave is much bigger. Therefore, the area and force of damage are bigger.
Russian forces knew there were a lot of people here, especially in the morning. They deliberately targeted this place. It was an intentional mass murder,” stated Ihor Klymenko, Head of the National Police of Ukraine.
