Deadly explosions nearly miss Ukrainian president Zelensky and Greece premier Mitsotakis

Explosions rocked Ukraine’s southern port city of Odesa during a meeting between President Volodymyr Zelensky and Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

The Ukrainian navy reported five fatalities, with no injuries to either delegation, according to BBC sources.

Mitsotakis described hearing sirens and explosions, with Russia claiming to target a maritime drone facility during Wednesday’s assault.

Zelensky criticized Russia for reckless targeting, stating they’ve either “gone crazy or lost control” over their forces.

In a joint news conference, Mitsotakis expressed the intensity of experiencing war firsthand, contrasting it with mere newspaper reports.

Zelensky noted casualties from the strike but lacked precise figures.

Amid Russia’s ongoing invasion, Ukrainians remain resolute against surrender.

The Russian defense ministry claimed hitting a hangar housing Ukrainian drones, although this wasn’t independently confirmed by the BBC.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen condemned the attack, emphasizing solidarity with Ukraine.

This assault follows a previous drone strike that claimed 12 lives, including five children, in Odesa on Saturday.

During their visit, Zelensky and Mitsotakis toured a house damaged in the attack, with Mitsotakis reaffirming Greece’s solidarity with Ukraine.
