Ukraine: Explosions reported as Russian troops hurl flashbang grenades

Russian soldiers have violently broken up peaceful pro-Ukrainian protests as the Kremlin invasion enters its sixth week.

In Enerhodar, on the Dnipro River in southern Ukraine, Moscow’s troops reportedly opened fire on protesters opposing the ongoing invasion.

This comes as Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine enters its sixth week, as Kiev’s forces have begun to make notable strides in retaking territory from Russia.

Hundreds of people gathered for a peaceful rally in the center of the city this morning.

There, the crowd sang the Ukrainian national anthem until Russian soldiers arrived to disperse the protesters.

Some were reportedly arrested when Moscow forces reportedly threw tear and flashbang grenades into the crowd and gunfire and explosions were heard.

The city has been occupied by Russian troops since March 4th.

Local authorities shared a video of the violence on Telegram and later Emine Dzheppar, Ukraine’s First Deputy Foreign Minister, tweeted the video.

She said: “Another video from #Enerhodar near #Zaporizhzhia, #Ukraine where Russian occupiers are shooting at brave Ukrainian protesters.”

That came along with video showing protesters fleeing plumes of smoke as gunshots and explosions rang out behind them.

Early reports also accused Russian forces of shelling another part of the city on Saturday.

This comes as the latest Defense Ministry intelligence update highlighted the success of Ukrainian forces with a series of counterattacks.

They coincided with Russian withdrawals around the capital, Kyiv, as Russia claimed it was originally done to aid peace talks, but intelligence agencies in the US and Ukraine doubted that motive.

Russian forces even withdrew from Hostomel Airport, which saw heavy fighting from the first day of the invasion.

However, reports indicate that Russia is instead moving these troops to eastern and southern parts of the country to support their troops there.

It added: “Along the eastern axis, Ukraine has recaptured several villages.

A number of protests have reportedly taken place in Ukrainian cities occupied by Russian troops in recent weeks



“In eastern Ukraine, after heavy fighting, Ukrainian forces have secured a key route east of Kharkiv.

“This follows the liberation of Trostyanets near Sumy earlier this week.”

In addition, Ukrainian authorities said they were reluctant to let civilians back into areas previously held by Russian forces amid reports of abandoned mines and tripwires.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that the withdrawal of Russian forces would cause a “complete disaster” with homes and even corpses sabotaged in their wake.

His warning came this morning as concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Mariupol continue to mount.

The city is surrounded by Russian troops and most attempts to provide humanitarian aid to the civilian population inside have been unsuccessful.

Several demonstrators were reportedly arrested and taken away



This week there were reports of an attack on a Russian oil depot, which the Kremlin claimed was Ukraine’s first attack on Russian territory since the beginning of the war.

Kyiv firmly denied the allegations, suggesting that Moscow’s negligence could be to blame.

So far, more than four million people, mostly women, children and the elderly, have fled their homes in Ukraine to escape the fighting during the fighting.

Most of the refugees came to Poland, but it is not known how many settled there or traveled to other countries.

Despite fears on the first day of the invasion that Russia would invade Ukraine and take the capital within days, fighting was significantly prolonged.

This was reportedly due to a mix of fierce resistance from Ukraine and underfunded, poorly equipped and led Russian troops.
