On November 11, 2023, a powerful explosion occurred in the temporarily occupied Melitopol, Zaporizhzhia region. "Bavovna" visited the occupiers' headquarters when the invaders were holding a meeting there.

At least three Russian officers were killed. The details were reported by the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine.

According to the military intelligence, activists of the local resistance movement were involved in the explosion.

"The revenge action, which was carried out by representatives of the local resistance movement, took place in the Russian-occupied premises of the Nova Poshta located on Dmytro Dontsov Street (the occupants call it Pavlo Sudoplatov Street). The Russian invaders have set up their headquarters in this building," the Main Directorate of Intelligence noted.

The timing of the explosion was not chosen by chance. The resistance activists carried out the attack when officers of the Russian Federal Security Service and the National Guard of Russia were gathered in the building for a meeting.

"An hour before the meeting, the Russians blocked traffic on the adjacent stretch of road - from the Melitopol Auto-Hydro-Aggregat to the former Melitopol Refrigeration Plant Refma. Both industrial facilities were turned into a military base by the Moscow invaders," the military intelligence said.

It is known that at least three National Guard officers were killed in the explosion. Data on other enemy losses are currently being clarified.

"After the attack, there was a commotion in Melitopol - many policemen rushed to the scene with their sirens on. After a while, they dragged a car that had been burned near the headquarters through the occupied city to their department," the Main Directorate of Intelligence added.

The mayor of Melitopol, Ivan Fedorov, reported a loud explosion in the temporarily occupied city after 6 p.m. the day before. According to him, the explosion was heard almost throughout the city.

A little later, he spoke about the invaders' intensification after the "bavovna".

"Residents report blocking traffic between the Refma and Agat factories, which the enemy turned into military bases. At the same time, after the explosion, which was heard by the whole city, security forces vehicles are driving through Melitopol at breakneck speed," Fedorov said at 19:32 on November 11.
