The Russian occupiers are urgently leaving the port of Berdyansk, exiled Melitopol mayor Ivan Fedorov has said.
According to him, after the explosion in the port, they began to urgently remove equipment and withdraw ships that were planning to transport the stolen grain.
"Unfortunately, grain is exported not only by sea but also by rail. And the proximity of the occupiers endangers the lives of all civilians, as civilians are also affected by their air defence systems," Fedorov added.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces recently struck the occupiers' location in Berdyansk, Zaporizhzhya Region. The Russians lost several S-300 systems.
Meanwhile, two Russian ships entered the port of occupied Berdyansk. The invaders loaded grain into one ship and metal into the other.
