Russian Missiles Fired – Tourist Sections Hit!
(DailyVantage.com) – Since Russia invaded Ukraine, it’s become increasingly aggressive in its actions to the point it’s firing missiles at non-military targets. This week, several struck Odesa, a port city on the Black Sea, leaving several people injured and one dead.
On Monday, May 9, Russia fired three hypersonic missiles, striking “tourist infrastructure,” including the Grande Pettine, a hotel frequently visited by prominent Russian officials. The incident reportedly left two people injured.
Another attack occurred the same day, involving seven missiles aimed at a shopping center. The attack killed at least one person and injured several others. Odesa Mayor Gennady Trukhanov took a snipe at Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying he “congratulated the Hero City of Odesa … [by] firing seven missiles at it,” while ironically laying flowers at a monument to the city located in Moscow.

Neither of these attacks involved military targets or service members, and they are far from isolated incidents. According to Ukrainian officials, Russia has fired more than half its reserve, at least 1,300 missiles on Ukraine from the sea, ground, and air since its invasion on February 24. Ukraine is still expecting more attacks of the same nature, and there is currently no end in sight.
