As a result, the building was destroyed, which contained Ukrainian prisoners of war, withdrawn from the Azovstal plant.

Immediately after the explosion, Russia accused the Armed Forces of Ukraine of shelling the penal colony. According to the Russian side, more than 50 Ukrainian defenders died, the number of wounded is unknown. Ukrainian law enforcement agencies said that the explosion in Yelenovka was a Russian terrorist act with the aim of concealing war crimes, discrediting the Armed Forces of Ukraine, disrupting the supply of weapons. They demand that the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross immediately respond to the terrorist attack and send an inspection mission to the territory of the colony.

According to Ukrainian intelligence, The attack was carried out by mercenaries from the PMC “Wagner” (League) on the personal instructions of the nominal owner of the specified PMC – Evgeny Prigozhin.
