According to the head of the military-civilian administration Zaporozhye region Evgeny Balitskyin order to intimidate residents of cities under the control of the Russian Federation, the Armed Forces of Ukraine use drones.
Balitsky said the intimidation began even before polling stations opened on September 23, when at 7 a.m. a Ukrainian drone dropped an object near the regional administration building, which later exploded.
As a result of the explosion, no one was injured, only cars that were nearby were damaged.
The head of the Supreme State Administration called the incident “an intimidating action” on the part of the Kyiv authorities.
“It was, apparently, such an intimidating action. But the same methods are used not only in Melitopol as a temporary regional center, but also in Rozovka, Chernigovka, that is, in a number of cities where drones also fly in and try to make such provocations “, – said Balitsky on the air of “Russia 24”.
Former press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov assured that all measures to ensure security were taken in the regions where referendums are being held.
