WorldRussiaOdesa: Air strikes claims 17 lives, injuring 31

The number of people who died in air strikes in Odesa has risen to 17. Two back-to-back missile strikes in residential buildings across different provisions have claimed the lives of 17 people and left 31 injured.

Whereas, Russia carried out the first air strike at 1 am on Friday, just hours after Ukraine dragged Russian forces out of the Snake Island. The Island was under the control of Russia since day one of the invasion.

The missile struck a nine-storey building, after which part of the building collapsed, leaving people buried under the rubble. The Ukrainian emergency services started the rescue operation immediately after the strike.

The second missile hit two buildings of a recreational centre in Odesa. The missile targeted a three-storey and a four-storey building in Bilhorod- Dnistrovskyi region leaving three dead, including a child and one wounded.

Russian missile strike on Kremenchuk on Monday had already raised questions about the Russian approach. Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of targeting civilians to frighten them.

Ukrainian army officials have estimated that Russia has hit 68 civilian sites in the second half of June. The attack was condemned by the United Nations and other world leaders.
Zelensky termed the attack “one of the most brazen terrorist acts in European history.”

Russia has taken an offensive approach after Sweden and Poland’s inclusion into NATO.

Oleksii Hromov, Brigadier general of the Ukrainian armed forces, said the number of missile strikes on Ukraine has more than doubled in the last two weeks, and Moscow is using inaccurate Soviet-era missiles for more than half of the attacks.

Russia is constantly denying the accusations of targeting civilians. Putin has said that everything is carried out properly by his army.
