Ukrainian officials report that the Russian attack killed at least one person and injured 32 people, including three children. 27 people were taken to the hospital.
“Zaporizhya. Residential areas where ordinary people and children live are being shelled right now. This must not become a ‘normal day’ in Ukraine or anywhere else in the world.
The world needs greater unity and determination to defeat Russian terror faster and protect lives,” says Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi.

Zaporizhia officials report that a total of six rockets were fired at Zaporizhia. Residential areas and the island of Hortica hit by Russian missiles. There are no military facilities nearby, which Russia usually declares as the target of its strikes.
Gas leakage also started after the missile hit.
The Ukrainian city of Zaporizhia is regularly hit by Russian missiles. On March 2, a Russian S-300 missile hit an apartment building, killing 13 people and injuring 11 others.
In the meantime, Ukrainian President Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the Donetsk region on Wednesday, where defenders of Ukraine are fighting against Russian invaders in the vicinity of Bakhmut. Zelensky listened to the report on the situation at the front and presented awards to the soldiers.
On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops. Putin claimed that NATO was going to use Ukraine as a springboard for aggression against Russia, although there was no evidence for these claims.
Ukraine believes that Putin’s real goal is to destroy Ukraine’s statehood and bring the territory under Moscow’s control.
Russia regularly fires missiles at Ukrainian cities to leave Ukrainians without electricity and heat. The European Parliament has declared Russia a state sponsor of terrorism.
On March 17, 2023, the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for Putin’s arrest, accusing him of war crimes related to the deportation of Ukrainian children.
