The Russian military launched another missile attack on Zaporizhzhya using missiles from the S-300 air defense system on the night of March 18, Zaporizhzhya Oblast Military Administration reported on Telegram on March 18.
A missile hit a building in one of the city’s residential complexes. The blast wave and debris also caused damage to nearby residential apartment buildings: windows were shattered, and roofs and facades were damaged.
In addition, a public catering establishment was destroyed by a Russian missile, city council’s secretary, Anatoly Kurtev, reported on Telegram on March 18.
Russia regularly attacks Zaporizhzhya, Dnipro and Kharkiv – cities that are all close to Russian territory or Russian-occupied parts of Ukraine – with missiles from the S-300 air defense systems. These missiles can be set to launch in ground-to-ground, ballistic mode, but are much less accurate in this mode as compared to being launched against targets in the air.
