War in Ukraine: “massive” Russian bombardments in the south of the country
The southern regions of Ukraine were the subject of “massive” Russian bombardments on Tuesday, which notably targeted a seaside village near Odessa and the port of Mykolaiv, the Ukrainian authorities announced. The Russian strikes come despite an agreement with Moscow signed last week to unblock Ukrainian grain exports, crucial for global food security, through three ports in the Odessa region.
The main information:
- Russian bombings took place in the south of the country
- Three civilians were killed in the Donetsk region
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky posted a video on his social media on Tuesday showing destroyed houses in Zatoka, a popular Black Sea resort near Odessa. “It’s morning. An ordinary village of Zatoka. People were resting and living. No bases, no troops. Russian terrorists just wanted to shoot,” he wrote in a comment.
Three civilians killed in Donetsk region
The southern command of the Ukrainian army reported on Tuesday “massive missile strikes in southern Ukraine with the use of planes from the Black Sea”. “In Odessa, residential buildings in coastal settlements were hit without causing casualties, according to initial information,” the army said in a statement on Facebook.
“The port infrastructure was targeted in the Mykolaiv region”, according to the same source. Mykolaiv regional governor Vitali Kim reported a “massive strike” on the city on Tuesday morning by posting a video showing numerous explosions and black smoke.
“A critical infrastructure facility and an automotive company were hit with no casualties, according to preliminary information,” he wrote on Telegram. “Missiles also targeted the outskirts of the city and there were attempts to damage the port infrastructure,” according to the same source. On the eastern front, three civilians have been killed in the past 24 hours in the Donetsk region (east), Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko announced on Tuesday.
