Russia-Ukraine war: 8 people killed in strikes in Odesa

A series of cruise missile attacks killed at least eight people in Ukraine’s Odesa region, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said. The missile further wounded 18 others in the Black sea city.

A series of cruise missile attacks killed at least eight people in Ukraine’s Odesa region, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The missile further wounded 18 others in the Black sea city. “The village of Girske suffered heavy Russian shelling the entire day,” Lugansk governor said on Telegram.

In a statement, the Russian Defence Ministry claimed that the Kyiv regime is mulling using toxic chemicals to strike civilian infrastructure in the area of Odesa port ‘Yuzhny,’ where at least 10 tons of ammonia were delivered on April 18.

The most plausible scenario for the staging is a fake missile strike by the Russian Armed Forces against the Ukrainian Navy’s western naval base, as a result of which the port’s cooling plant will be blown up, the statement read.

Meanwhile, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said Ukraine hoped to secure heavy weapons at talks with the US secretaries of state and defence in Kyiv on Sunday, supplies that he said were vital for Ukraine to eventually retake Russian-occupied territory.

The Ukrainian leader warned that Kyiv would quit talks with Moscow if Russia destroyed “our people” surrounded in the war-torn city of Mariupol or staged referendums to create more breakaway republics on newly-occupied Ukrainian soil.

At one point in an emotional news conference, he said that he thought Russia could use a nuclear weapon, but that he did not want to believe that Moscow would.
