Ukraine says Putin’s troops struck critical infrastructure, but ‘systems are working’ and no casualties reported
Russia-Ukraine war: latest updates
Russian missiles struck “critical infrastructure”, most likely a fuel depot, near Ukraine’s southern port of Odesa in the early hours of Sunday but there were no casualties, officials in the city said.
Odesa is a key Black Sea port 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 build a land corridor to Transnistria, a Russian-speaking breakaway region of Moldova which hosts Russian troops.
