A grenade exploded near the Russian commandant's office in occupied Melitopol on May 18, Zaporizhzhya Regional Military Administration has reported on Telegram, referring to reports by local residents.
The Russian invaders are afraid of night-time "guerrilla warfare" and have started learning the Ukrainian language – according to information from intercepted phone conversations between enemy soldiers who complain about attacks by Ukrainians in Zaporizhzhya Oblast.
"What is interesting: at the end of the conversation, the invaders switch to Ukrainian and say goodbye with the words 'Do pobachennia' (Goodbye). In a little more time we will teach them to say 'Slava Ukraini!' (Glory to Ukraine!)," the report says.
Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian guerrillas had killed two high-ranking Russian officers in Melitopol.
On May 18, an enemy armored train was reported to have been blown up in occupied Melitopol.
Oleksiy Arestovych, an adviser to the head of the President's Office, later said that guerrillas in temporarily occupied Melitopol had blown up railway tracks, not a Russian armored train.
