The Russians Fired 2 “X-31” Missiles to the Odesa Region

On July 7, the occupiers opened fire from "Su-30". 1 missile hit the tanker, the 2nd was destroyed by air defense

Just now, the official representative of the joint military command South reported about the missile attack on the Odesa region.

"During another airstrike on the Odesa region, 2 X-31 missiles were fired from the Su-30 aircraft. One hit the tanker Millennial Spirit (Moldova flag), which is drifting in the territorial sea without a crew, with the remains of diesel fuel on board. It will be recalled that the tanker was fired upon by Russian warships in the Black sea at the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Currently, it is likely that the remains of the cargo are burning. At the time of the first hit, the ship was carrying more than 500 tons of diesel fuel. Due to the blockade by the shipping lanes, the tanker has been drifting in the sea without a crew for 4 months, like an environmental time bomb," the South command informed.

The 2nd missile detonated over the sea or was shot down by air defense. The information is being clarified.
