Russian attack kills one in Odessa
(Reuters) – Russia fired missiles at several Ukrainian cities, killing one in southern Ukraine’s Odessa, officials said on Thursday.
Two other people were also wounded in an attack targeting an industrial site in Odessa, Serhiy Brachouk, a spokesman for the military administration in the region, announced on Telegram.
Kiev Mayor Vitali Klychko told Telegram that the fire started after debris fell in the Darnitsa district, southeast of the capital. He said that there was no report of any casualty.
The head of the Ukrainian capital’s military administration, Serhiy Popko, said on a telegram that another fire broke out in the Desna district, northeast of Kiev, without giving further details.
Serhiy Popko said cruise missiles were fired at Kiev and all of them were intercepted by air defences.
