Melitopol — Center of the Partisan Movement

Ukrainian partisans in Melitopol blew up an enemy armored train and prevented the invaders from bringing weapons to Ukraine

Zaporizhzhia region, the cradle of Ukrainian Cossacks. Today, it is in this area that the largest Ukrainian partisan resistance operates. The city of Melitopol is temporarily under Russian occupation, but in this city, Russians suffer the most from the underground resistance. On May 18, partisans, defending Ukraine, blew up a Russian armored train. A powerful explosion was heard almost throughout the city. None of the Russian soldiers were injured: a train with military supplies and a railway were blown up.

The American Institute for War Research called Melitopol the center of the partisan movement.
