At 17:10 on 12 November, Secretary of Zaporizhzhia City Council Anatolii Kurtiev wrote that the explosions that rocked the city some 30 minutes before were the successful work of Ukrainian air defenses.

In his 20:28 update, Kurtiev wrote that unexploded cluster munitions fell in one of the residential neighborhoods of the city as a result of the attack.
