Shelling of Zaporizhzhia: Police announce new death toll

Aug 9, 2023

The number of deaths due to Russian shelling in Zaporizhzhia has decreased. Doctors managed to resuscitate one of the victims, who was considered dead.


This was reported by the Minister of Internal Affairs Ihor Klymenko.

"Initially, there was information about three dead. Fortunately, one person was resuscitated. The doctors were assisted by police paramedics at the scene," Klymenko said.

At the same time, the minister noted that rescuers quickly eliminated the fire in the outbuilding.

"The police conducted a door-to-door inspection of the residential buildings. No one was found dead or injured. The people who were outside at the time of arrival were injured," noted Ihor Klymenko.

As a reminder, Russian terrorists launched a missile attack on Zaporizhzhia in the evening of August 9. The number of victims is currently seven. However, the number may increase, as the occupants shelled a residential area, where the blast wave smashed windows in high-rise buildings. A church and a supermarket were also destroyed as a result of the missile strike.
