“It cannot be ruled out that yesterday's Russian missile attack in Odessa was aimed at delegations of Volodymyr Zelensky or Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.”

Ihor Zhovkva , senior Ukrainian diplomatic advisor , said this to CNN, commenting on the raid conducted with drones by the Moscow army against the Ukrainian city. “It was really less than 500 meters from us and it cannot be ruled out that it was directed at my president's delegation or the delegation of foreign guests,” added the councilor.

The explosion in the port city on the Black Sea - which caused 5 victims and which according to the Kremlin was carried out against "military objectives" - was felt yesterday about 150 meters from the area where a meeting between the leader of Kiev and the Greek prime minister, giving rise to hypotheses of a possible attack aimed precisely at hitting Zelensky.

The incident aroused condemnation from EU states . For Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni it was a "cowardly attack". "This latest act of Russian intimidation - added the Prime Minister - will have no effect and will not weaken the Ukrainian resistance, alongside which Italy and its government are aligned without giving in".

From Russia, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev commented on his Telegram channel: «It is obvious that yesterday's Russian missile attack in Odessa was not directed against the motorcade of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, because, if that had been the target, he would have been hit ." But, Medvedev added, "it is a shame" that the missiles instead fell on their intended target.
