Ukraine has sharply condemned a Russian rocket attack on a residential building in the southern Ukrainian region of Odessa that killed at least 21 and wounded 39. President Volodymyr Zelenskyj spoke of “deliberate, targeted Russian terror”. Neither weapons nor military equipment were hidden in the house – “as Russian propagandists and officials always tell about such attacks,” he said in a video message on Friday. The impact of the three rockets was not an accident.
Saturday is the 129th day of the war for Ukraine.
