Missile strikes on Odesa: Russia is intensifying attacks on Ukraine’s key port cities


Deutsche Welle reports: Ukraine authorities say a Russian missile attack on the southern city of Odesa has injured at least six people, including a child. A spokesman for the local military administration said Russian forces fired at least seven cruise missiles from the Black Sea, hitting residential areas and destroying several homes. Odesa is home to Ukraine’s biggest port, and is crucial to exporting desperately needed grain to the rest of the world. Some 22 million tons of grain remain stuck there because of the fighting.
