Russia systematically destroys churches in Ukraine: the cathedral in Odesa is not even in the top 100
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the terrorist state Russia has been systematically shelling churches in Ukraine. Hundreds of religious institutions have suffered significant damage as a result of the occupants' attacks.
Most of the more than 400 religious buildings that have been damaged since the invasion began belong to the UOC of the Moscow Patriarchate. This is reported by the publication "Left Bank" (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).
The Russian terrorist army destroyed more than 80 churches to the ground. The largest number of damaged religious institutions are in Donetsk region.
The Russian troops also destroyed 8 and partially damaged 7 monasteries - all of them are also located in Donetsk region. More than 20 clergymen became victims of Russian occupiers in Ukraine.
Apart from Donbas, Russian terrorists also destroyed religious institutions in Kherson, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and other regions of our country.
We would like to remind you that on the night of July 23, the Russian terrorist army launched another missile attack on Odessa. As a result of the terrorist attack, the Transfiguration Cathedral of the UOC-MP was destroyed.
Earlier it was reported that on the night of July 23 in Odessa sounded a series of explosions, worked air defense, but there are also arrivals. According to OC South, Russian forces attacked the region with Kh-22 cruise missiles from Tu22m3 aircraft, as well as Kalibras, Onyx, Iskander-K, and Iskander-M ballistic missiles.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the Russian Ministry of Defense has issued an inane justification for its criminal actions. The occupiers cynically lied that in the Odessa cathedral allegedly "prepared terrorist attacks against the Russian Federation".
