Three people were killed and at least 13 were injured after Russia launched a missile attack at the southern city of Odesa overnight on June 14, Ukraine's Southern Command reported in a post on Facebook.

The command said that according to updated information, Russia launched four Kalibr cruise missiles at the city. In an earlier post, the command said that two of the missiles were shot down by Ukrainian air defenses.

A Russian missile attack on Kryvyi Rih on June 13 killed 11 people and injured 36 others. More than 70 residential buildings were also damaged as a result of the missile strike, as well as three schools, three buildings of two other educational institutions, and a dormitory.
