MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. The Ukrainian armed forces have shelled the territory of Energodar and its adjacent areas 40 times in the past 24 hours, Yevgeny Balitsky, acting governor of the Zaporozhye Region, said during a Rossiya-24 TV broadcast on Wednesday.
"Yesterday we had quite a ‘hot’ day. About 40 [Ukrainian] strikes in the suburbs and the city of Energodar [were carried out]," he said.
Balitsky noted that the Ukrainian military deliberately shells the territory of Energodar, especially the thermal power station and its surroundings, in order to disrupt the heating season in the city. "But there will be a heating season in the city of Energodar in any case", the acting head of the region stressed.
