Russia claims Odesa attack targeted infrastructure

Odesa attack
Russian missiles struck "critical infrastructure", most likely a fuel warehouse, near Ukraine's southern port city of Odesa in the early hours of Sunday but there were no losses, authorities in the city said.

Odesa, on the Black Sea coast, is a key Black Seaport and the main base for Ukraine's navy. It has been a focus for Russian forces because if it is taken it would allow Moscow to fabricate a land passage to Transdniestria, a Russian-speaking breakaway province of Moldova that hosts Russian soldiers.

Russia's defense ministry said missile strikes by its military destroyed an oil refinery and three fuel storage facilities near Odesa on Sunday, adding that the facilities were utilized by Ukraine to supply its soldiers near the city of Mykolaiv.

Vladyslav Nazarov, an officer of Ukraine's South Operational Command, said on Telegram: "Russia began with a missile strike. The Odesa region was among the priority targets. The enemy continued its detestable acts of strikes against critical infrastructure."

"Smoke is visible in some areas of the city. Every important framework and design are working ... No casualties reported."
