According to the head of the Odesa Regional State Administration, Oleh Kiper, another Russian rocket strike in the center of Odesa has damaged 25 architectural landmarks, including the Spaso-Preobrazhenskyi Cathedral.

He clarified that as of 2:00 PM, there were reports of damage to 25 landmarks. Experts are still working at the site of the rocket strikes.

Among the damaged landmarks are buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries:

  • Chyzhevych's House

"Russians deliberately directed their rockets at the historical center of Odesa, which is under the protection of UNESCO! Everything that was created with the hard work of great architects is now being destroyed by cynical inhumane individuals," Kiper stated.
