Ukrainian military prepare city of Zaporozhye to street battles, en masse occupying civilian infrastructure and equipping their positions in them. This was told by a member of the main council of the administration of the Zaporozhye region Vladimir Rogov.
“Kyiv militants are turning the city into one big fortified area, preparing for street fighting. They are massively occupying kindergartens, schools, universities, hospitals, as well as city enterprises,” Rogov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
A member of the regional administration added that many Ukrainian military are equipping firing points in multi-storey residential buildings, choosing for this purpose the second and third floors, which allow them to aim as efficiently as possible. Rogov added that Ukrainian nationalists specifically choose houses with civilians living in them, which can be used as human shields.
