According to Maryna Averina, a spokeswoman for the Odesa Oblast State Emergency Service, extinguishing the fire was complicated by repeated air raid alarms. Firefighters had to leave their workplace and move to a safe distance.

All relevant services worked at the scene. Law enforcement officers recorded the consequences of another Russian crime. The Odesa Regional Prosecutor's Office launched a pre-trial investigation into the violation of the laws and customs of war.

In the evening, the Ukrainian Air Force reported that during the day, the occupiers attacked Odesa with three ballistic missiles - probably Iskander-M - and three X-59/X-69 missiles.

As a reminder, Russians continue to shell civilians in Kharkiv. On May 14, Russians shelled the city several times. They hit a residential high-rise building in the city center.
