On Wednesday evening, May 1, Russian occupants attacked Odesa using ballistic missiles. Explosions were heard in the city. At least 13 people are known to have been injured as a result of the enemy shelling.

According to a correspondent of OBOZ.UA, two strong explosions were heard in Odesa around 22:00 during the air raid. The Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces warned of the threat of Russian troops using ballistic weapons.

After the explosions, a massive fire broke out in the sorting depot and the Nova Poshta office.

The head of the Odesa regional military administration, Oleh Kiper, confirmed on his Telegram channel that a massive fire broke out in the city upon arrival. As of 23:00, 13 people were reported injured.

"The estimated value of all the parcels that were destroyed as a result of the strike will be compensated to customers in full. We will contact all recipients tomorrow. The parcels that were in transit have been redirected to the 3rd branch of Nova Poshta in Odesa," the statement said.
