Occupying Russian forces launched another attack on Zaporizhzhya, having hit an energy infrastructure facility presumably with S-300 missiles, the oblast’s military administration said on Telegram on March 11.

"Having no success in the battle with the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Russians shelled today (presumably with S-300) a life support facility of the regional capital, where several hundred thousand civilians live, including a large number of people who were forced to leave their homes and flee the Russian occupation," it said.

All relevant services are engaged in eliminating the consequences of the Russian attack, the authorities said.

Later, the secretary of Zaporizhzhya City Council, Anatoliy Kurtev, reported that a fire had broken out in one of the city's districts after the missile attacks.

In the early hours on March 2, Russian troops carried out an S-300 missile attack on Zaporizhzhya. An enemy missile struck a five-storey residential building and destroyed over ten apartments. Thirteen civilians, including a child, were killed in that attack.
