Quote: “We have survived this day. There have been a total of 324 strikes on Orikhiv today. Over 200 of them occurred before lunch, then by the end of the day the number stood at 324!
Nine residents have been injured.
This is the price we pay today for ‘Russkiy Mir’. [‘Russkiy Mir’, literally ‘Russian world’ or ‘Russian peace’, is the concept of total domination of Russian culture over other cultures; it gives rise to and ‘legitimises’ Russia’s current expansionist, colonial politics – ed.]
The town infrastructure is being destroyed. The population is being destroyed. You never know which direction the strikes will come from and how many of them will be there.”
Details: Madrych has urged the residents of Orikhiv to stay in shelters while the air-raid sirens are activated.
Mandrych noted that the civil defence hub is temporarily closed, and the city council is not accepting any requests.
“This is for your safety. The night is ahead. The explosions are ringing out again,” she added.
