Loud explosions were heard in Melitopol in the early hours of April 6, in the area of the Aviamistechko, which is located on the base of Russian invasion forces, the mayor of Melitopol, Ivan Fedorov, reported in his Telegram channel on April 6.

“According to preliminary information, the long-suffering enemy base of the Russian invaders in the area of the captured airport (was hit by explosions),” Fedorov said.

“The invaders immediately reported on the ‘precise (work of) air defense systems’. And then they themselves sent ambulances towards the airport.” Fedorov said that the losses of the Russians were being verified. He also posted a video in which the loud sounds of explosions can be heard.

During the night in Melitopol, explosions were heard in all areas of the city, according to numerous reports from locals. There were also explosions the day before, but details about what their cause was and what might have been hit are sketchy.

Melitopol, which has been transformed into a military city by Russian invasion forces, has also seen a number of attacks by resistance forces in recent weeks.

On April 3, the vehicle of collaborator Maxim Zubarev exploded in the center of Melitopol. According to Fedorov, Zubarev lost an arm and a leg as a result of the explosion.

Zubarev was one of the first to collaborate with the Russian invaders, and led the so-called Akymivka administration.

Prior to this, it was reported that a power substation used by Russian troops was blown up in the Melitopol area.
