MADRID, May 9. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Ukrainian city of Odesa has been attacked this Monday with several cruise missiles fired from the Crimean peninsula, controlled since 2014 by Russia, according to local authorities, who have not given details of possible damage.
The Odessa City Council has reported in its Telegram account the impact in the region of at least four Onix missiles, one of the most modern high-precision projectiles available to the Russian Armed Forces.
The area had already been attacked on Sunday with cruise missiles fired from the Black Sea. For Russia, controlling the southwestern part of Ukraine would mean establishing a corridor from the Donbas region to Transnistria, a breakaway region in eastern Moldova.
