According to information revealed by Ukrainian media, the next main direction of the Russian army’s attack is not Kherson, but Odessa.

The Russian army’s offensive against Odessa appears to be divided into three steps.

First, the air force conducted large-scale bombing, completely destroying or weakening most military targets and commands of the Ukrainian army.

The city of Odessa is Ukraine’s most important port.

With its strategic geographical location, Odessa often becomes the target of fire raids from the Russian military.

Ukraine accuses Russia of repeated attacks on Odessa as part of Moscow’s efforts to destroy Ukraine’s food exports.

Ukrainian officials said that Russian forces often launch Kalibr missiles and deploy ships in the Black Sea at midnight.

Russia launched a series of retaliatory attacks against Odessa and areas in southern Ukraine after announcing its withdrawal from the Black Sea grain deal and accusing Ukraine of being behind the explosion on the Crimea bridge.
