Russia struck the Ukrainian Black Sea city of Odesa again on Sunday, local officials said, keeping up a barrage of attacks that has damaged critical port infrastructure in southern Ukraine in the past week. At least one person was killed and 22 others wounded in the attack in the early hours.


Regional Gov. Oleh Kiper said four children were also wounded in the blasts, which severely damaged the historic Transfiguration Cathedral.


Russia has been launching persistent attacks on Odesa, a key hub for exporting grain, since Moscow cancelled a landmark grain deal on Monday amid Kyiv’s grinding efforts to retake its occupied territories.


Kiper said six residential buildings, including apartment buildings, were destroyed by the strikes. In one such case in Odesa, some people became trapped in their apartments as a result of the damage caused by the attack, which left rubble strewn in the street and partly blocking the road, and damage to power lines.

Meanwhile, the Transfiguration Cathedral, one of the most important and largest Orthodox Cathedrals in Odesa, was severely damaged. Local officials said that the icon of the patroness of the city had been retrieved from under the rubble.
