A Russian missile strike at the airport in the southwestern port of Odesa — a city that has so far been relatively unscathed in the war — has damaged the runway, and it can no longer be used, the Ukrainian military said on Saturday.

Russia has sporadically targeted Odesa, a Black Sea port, and a week ago, Ukraine said at least eight people were killed in a strike on the city.

“As a result of a missile attack in the Odesa region, the runway at Odesa airport was damaged. Its further use is impossible,” the Ukrainian military said.

There was no immediate word on the strike from the Russian military.
