The Russian army fired seven missiles at Odesa Oblast, the Deputy Head of the President’s Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko said in a message on Telegram on July 11.

He said the launches were made from aircraft over the Russian-occupied Ukrainian territory of Crimea.

The missiles were launched from Su-27, Su-30 and Su-35 planes from the Black Sea area at around 11:30 a.m., according to Tymoshenko.

The missile hit a house in one of the coastal villages, and several more houses were damaged by the shock wave, said Nataliya Humenyuk, the spokesperson for the Joint Coordination Center of the Defense Forces of southern Ukraine. Rescuers are working at the scene, she said.

No casualties have been reported at this stage.

Serhiy Bratchuk, the spokesman for the Odesa regional governor, earlier reported that an infrastructure facility had been hit by a Russian missile.

The Russian military earlier launched missiles at Kharkiv, as a result of which three people died and 28 were wounded.

Having made few territorial gains in Ukraine in the last few weeks, Russia’s invasion army appears to have switched tactics to strike with rockets and cruise missiles at civilian targets far behind the front lines – apparently in an attempt to terrorize Ukraine’s civilian population.
