Russian shelling of Odesa

Russian troops often terrorize Odesa, particularly from the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea. In addition, the Russians used to often deliver devastating strikes with their Soviet Kh-22 missiles, launching them from Tu-22M3 aircraft.

But, as the head of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine Kyrylo Budanov predicts, Russians will stop launching Kh-22s over Odesa after losing this strategic bomber.
