Moscow bombs Odesa in response for destroying Russian warships in Crimea


In response to Ukrainian forces destroying a Russian missile carrier at a Kerch shipyard, Russian forces have bombed Odesa region on Sunday, damaging an art museum and warehouses.

A Russian Kalibr missile carrier was destroyed by the Ukrainian attack on Saturday. It was confirmed by Ukrainian Air Forces commander, Mykola Oleshchuk. The ship was in the Russian Zaliv shipyard in the city of Kerch in Russia-occupied Crimea.

“Well done, the attack went through like a SCALPel,” Oleshchuk said, hinting that the Ukrainian plot used French SCALP cruise missiles for the attack.


While the commander did not name the vessel, it was claimed by the Ukrainian service of Radio Liberty that it was Askold – one of the newest Russian missile carriers. It was confirmed by the defense ministry of Russia that only ship had been damaged.

Ukraine had also targeted Russia’s ammo depot in Sedove on the coast of the Azov Sea in the Donetsk region Sunday morning.
