On Sunday, Russia’s Defense Ministry announced that it had struck at weapons supplied to Ukraine by the United States and European countries and destroyed a runway at a military airfield near the Black Sea Port city of Odesa. They used high-precision Bastion missiles to strike the airfield after Ukraine accused Russia of knocking out a newly-constructed runway at the main airport of Odesa.

Ukrainian President Zelensky announced in a late-night address:

“The Odesa airport runway was destroyed. We will, of course, rebuild it. But Odesa will never forget Russia’s behaviour towards it.”

An Unfunny Stooge

Odesa regional governor Maksym Marchenko said Russia had used a Bastion missile launched from Crimea. “Thank God no one was hurt. Anti-sabotage measures are being carried out in the region,” he said in a video posted online.
