Ukrainian Military Boat In Odesa Destroyed In Attack By Russian Forces
Moscow: Russian forces have destroyed a Ukrainian military boat in the port of Odesa here with high-precision missiles, according to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
Zakharova said Russian Kalibr missiles destroyed a Ukrainian “patrol boat” in the strike.
Neither the Russian army nor Zakharova provided evidence to prove the claims.
Zakharova’s comment came after Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy accused Russia of striking Odesa port a day after grain deal struck with the United Nations, Turkey and Ukraine.
The Ukrainian military had said Russian missiles hit the southern port on Saturday, threatening a deal signed just one day earlier to unblock grain exports from Black Sea ports and ease global food shortages caused by the war.
