Invading Russian forces have been preventing a shipment of humanitarian aid from entering the town of Enerhodar for the last two days, local mayor Dmytro Orlov said in a Telegram messenger post on Sept. 4.

“The invaders did not let the humanitarian cargo organized by us enter Enerhodar,” the mayor said.

“It was supposed to arrive in the town yesterday, but it didn’t happen. Today’s repeated attempt to bring people the necessary things also failed. The Russians just turned the cars back.”

Orlov said the invaders had given the excuse that “Enerhodar does not need anything, and the local residents have everything (the need), and even more.”

According to the mayor, the shipment includes diapers for children and bedridden adults, hygiene kits for large families and people with disabilities, as well as foodstuff for vulnerable groups.

“We have collected a large number of addressed sets with specific medicines, the regular intake of which is vital for people with certain diseases,” Orlov said.

He added the trucks also carried 1,000 square meters of special protective fabric for temporary repairs to windows damaged by shelling.
