The Russian military again tried to launch a missile strike on one of the districts of Odessa region, but, fortunately, shot down the enemy target.
According to the chairman of the Odessa OVA Maxim Marchenko, during June 22 the Russian troops also let out rockets on Mykolayivska, Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions.
About it Marchenko told in an evening video message on Wednesday, June 22.
“The enemy tried to strike a missile at one of the districts of Odessa region. The missile was shot down by our air defense units. In addition to Odessa region, the enemy fired missiles at Mykolayiv, Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions. Many people were injured, many infrastructure facilities were destroyed“, – he said.
Earlier wrote, why the Russian occupiers are mercilessly firing city and settlements of Kharkiv region. As military expert Oleh Zhdanov explained, this is a distracting maneuver to distract some Ukrainian forces from the east, as well as to create the illusion of a main strike that they are transferring their forces to the Kharkiv direction in order to capture the city.
