At least 21 dead, including two children in Russian missile attack

“We will respond to the Russian attack on Odessa soon,”  the Ukrainian government says. A Russian missile hit an apartment building, leaving at least 21 dead – including two children – and about 40 injured. In the port of Mykolaiv ‘prohibited cluster bombs’ were launched.

Russia claimed it was attacking military outposts. Meanwhile in Mariupol, another mass grave with 100 corpses was found.

“Europe will stand by Ukraine as long as necessary. We will not rest until you prevail”, said the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, in a speech on video link to the Parliament in Kiev.
