Quote from Fedorov: "The Ruscists [sic] have received the first part of revenge for the death of a newborn in Vilniansk,  Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

Our soldiers destroyed the S-300 missile system that the Russian terrorists used to launch a missile that hit a local maternity ward."

Details: Russian occupation forces carried out a missile strike on a hospital in Vilniansk on the night of 22–23 November. The missile destroyed a two-storey building which housed a maternity ward. A two-day-old newborn baby boy was killed in the attack.

Fedorov said that Ukrainian resistance forces identified the location in the village of Zelenyi Yar where the Russian missile system was deployed; artillery forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine then destroyed the system.

Previously: On the night of 16–17 November, the city of Vilniansk was hit by Russian missiles; nine civilians were killed in the attack.
