Quote from Kurtiev: “As a result of today’s attack on Zaporizhzhia, unexploded cluster munitions have been dropped on one of the city’s residential neighbourhoods.
Six residential apartment buildings are located in the area that might be affected if the unexploded munitions detonate. We have started evacuating their residents.
Some of the residents left on their own; we are using municipal transport to take others to the nearest visitor centres, where they are given food and medical assistance, if they need it. We are expecting evacuation to last until tomorrow.”
Details: Kurtiev added that the buildings and their grounds are being monitored by the National Police officers.
Previously: Earlier on Saturday, 12 November, Kurtiev reported that anti-aircraft defence systems were deployed in Zaporizhzhia and missile fragments fell on one of the city’s streets.
