The Greek guest admitted that he was shocked by what happened

On the morning of March 6, Russian troops launched a missile attack on Odesa when Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky were visiting the city. The shelling resulted in deaths and injuries.

Zelensky himself commented on the strike during his visit to Odesa. "We saw this strike today. You see who we are dealing with, they don't care where they hit. I know that there were victims today, I don't know all the details yet, but I know that there are dead and wounded," he said.

The President added that Ukraine needs to strengthen its air defense.

"These are military, civilians, international guests - these people do not care. They are either crazy or completely out of control of their terrorist army's actions. This suggests that we need to defend ourselves first and foremost. The best way to do this is with an air defense system," Zelensky said.
