KYIV. March 27 (Interfax-Ukraine) – On Monday, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that dozens of apartments in two houses in Zaporizhia, the most affected by the rocket attack committed by the Russian occupiers on March 22, are no longer suitable for living.

“Necessary medical assistance was provided to the injured residents. A mobile hospital was set up on the spot,” Zelenskyy said on Telegram.

He noted that aid stations and a mobile central control center are working at the site of the shelling, where people can get all the necessary consultations and arrange for the provision of material assistance.

The press service of the head of state, in turn, clarified that as a result of ammunition hitting one of the nine-storey residential buildings, the supporting structures of one of the entrances were damaged.

“The collapse of the structures of the upper floors of this part of the building did not occur, but there is still a high probability of this. Therefore, it is necessary to dismantle this part of the building using special equipment,” the President’s Office noted.
