On April 23, the Russians fired seven missiles at Odessa. The Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed two Russian cruise missiles and two operational-tactical UAVs — Operational Command “South.” The rockets were launched by Russian aircraft from the Caspian Sea.

However, two other Russian missiles hit a military facility and two apartment buildings. The State Emergency Service reported that eight people were killed at the moment, including one child, and 18-20 people were injured. Two people were rescued from the rubble, and 86 residents were evacuated.

“Among those killed was a three-month-old child. A child who was to celebrate his first Easter with his parents,” said Andriy Yermak, Head of the Ukrainian President’s office.

The wreckage of one of the rockets hit a local cemetery, injuring a woman. Among the dead was a man who burned alive in his car near the shelled house.

Russia claims that this blow destroyed the “foreign weapons collection.” This was stated by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
