An explosion rocked a checkpoint set up by invading Russian forces in the occupied town of Vasylivka in Zaporizhzhya Oblast on Sept. 8.

Eyewitnesses posted footage from the scene.

The video shows a pillar of black smoke after the blast occurred near the invaders’ fortified positions.

“It was at this ‘Tarilka’ (Plate) checkpoint that most of the civilians who were leaving occupied Kherson Oblast were searched and abused,” the users said on social networks.
