Russian Missiles Fall on Odessa as Troops Cross Strategic River in Eastern Ukraine

HeadlineMay 10, 2022

Russian missiles fell on the Ukrainian port city of Odessa overnight, destroying a shopping mall and two hotels and leaving at least one person dead. The assault came as Russian forces reportedly crossed a key river in eastern Ukraine’s Luhansk region as they seek to cut Ukrainian supply lines. In Mariupol, Russian troops commemorated “Victory Day” Monday with a march through the streets of the occupied city, joined by pro-Russia separatists. The parade came as Russian jets continued to bomb the massive Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, where hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers remain holed up. Ukrainian officials say 100 civilians are continuing to shelter in tunnels under the plant — contradicting earlier reports that the last civilians had managed to evacuate.
