A Russian missile strike on Saturday knocked out the newly-constructed runway at the main airport in the Ukrainian city of Odesa, a strategic Black Sea port, military and civilian officials said. "The Odesa airport runway was destroyed. We will, of course, rebuild it. But Odesa will never forget Russia's behavior towards it," President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a late-night address. Odesa regional governor Maksym Marchenko said Russia had used a Bastion missile, launched from Crimea. Russia's military has not yet confirmed the strike.

Russia's armed forces said they had hit 17 Ukrainian military facilities with high-precision missiles on Saturday and also destroyed a command post and a warehouse used to store rockets and artillery. In an online post, the defense ministry also said air force strikes during the day killed more than 200 Ukrainian troops and destroyed 23 armored vehicles.
