Russian troops have launched a missile attack on Zaporizhzhya International Airport, Interfax-Ukraine reports this with reference to MP Musa Mahomedov.

"Another beautiful airport has been destroyed, this time in Zaporizhzhya. Burn in hell. There is definitely a separate personal hell for those who destroy our airports, the gates of freedom," Mahomedov wrote on Telegram and posted a photo of the damaged terminal.
