Russian attack destroys Odessa airport runway

The airport in Odessa, in southern Ukraine, was hit this Saturday by a Russian missile that destroyed the runway, causing no casualties, said regional governor Machim Marchenko.

“Today the enemy attacked us from Crimea by a Bastion coastal defense missile system. The runway at Odessa airport was destroyed. Thank God there were no casualties,” said the governor, in a video posted on his Telegram account. .

Russia launched a military offensive in Ukraine on February 24 that has killed about 3,000 civilians, according to the UN, which warns that the real number is likely to be much higher.

The military offensive caused the flight of more than 12 million people, of which more than 5.4 million were out of the country, according to the latest UN data.

The Russian invasion was condemned by the international community in general, which responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and reinforcing economic and political sanctions on Moscow.
