Ukraine War Briefing Zelenskiy Urges More Weapons Following Deadly Russian Attack Near Zaporizhzhia

Russian forces fired missiles at the town of Vilniansk, near Zaporizhzhia, killing seven people and injuring 31 others on Saturday, officials reported.

 

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy reiterated his call for allies to provide Ukraine with more long-range weapons and enhanced air defenses to counter the daily assaults on his country. According to Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin, two missiles hit the town in Ukraine’s southeast, damaging infrastructure, a shop, and residential buildings. Emergency services confirmed the death toll at seven, including two children, and noted that eight of the 31 injured were also children. Firefighters extinguished several building fires and completed rescue operations.

 

Zaporizhzhia’s regional governor, Ivan Fedorov, described the Vilniansk strike as “another dreadful terrorist act against the civilian population.” He emphasized that it occurred “in the middle of the day, a non-working day, in the town center, where people were out relaxing, where there were no military targets.” Russia’s defense ministry, however, claimed on Telegram that its missiles had struck a nearby area where Ukrainian trains were unloading arms and military equipment, killing soldiers and destroying armored vehicles and missiles. Neither side’s battlefield accounts could be independently verified.

 

In the Donetsk region, Russian attacks on frontline villages resulted in the deaths of four people, according to Ukrainian officials. Three of the fatalities occurred in the village of Zarichne, as reported by the region’s head, Vadym Filashkin, on social media. Another individual, a resident of the frontline village of New York, also sustained fatal injuries, Ukraine’s general prosecutor confirmed later.

 

Ukrainian forces shelled parts of southern Russia’s Kursk region throughout Saturday following an overnight drone attack on a village that killed five people, including two children, according to the regional governor. Alexei Smirnov posted on Telegram that the five fatalities occurred in a house in the village of Gorodishche, east of the regional center of Kursk. Two family members were hospitalized. A video on Smirnov’s Telegram channel showed him at a destroyed house amid piles of rubble and building materials.

 

Ukraine and Russia announced that priests were among the dozens of captured soldiers and civilians exchanged earlier this week. President Zelenskiy stated on Saturday that two Ukrainian Greek Catholic priests taken captive in Moscow-occupied Berdiansk were returned to Ukraine through Vatican mediation. Russia noted that a high-ranking Ukrainian Orthodox cleric was handed over to Moscow along with two other priests. The exchange saw 90 prisoners of war and some civilians traded on each side earlier this week.

 

In Dnipro, rescuers reported that several residents remained missing after a Russian strike on Friday evening destroyed the top four floors of an apartment block in central Ukraine, killing at least one person and wounding 12, including a seven-month-old girl.
