Putin rocked: Saboteurs blow up railway bridge, ruining 'Z' weapons train plot

The city’s exiled mayor made the claim, which was later confirmed by a Russian-installed official. Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov, who is currently on Ukraine-controlled territory, said on Telegram: “At 3 o’clock (0000 GMT) and 5 o’clock (0200 GMT), there were over 30 strikes on a single military base.”

The military aerial logistics base has been “taken out of action”.

He later added on television that the base had been used to store ammunition for Russia’s heavy weapons.

He said: “They stored and handled the logistics of ammunition for heavy weapons at this base.”

He added: “At present the situation has not calmed down (and) everything is still detonating.”

Footage circulating on social media suggests the Melitopol Air Base was still burning on Monday afternoon.
