Russian missile attacks on residential areas in a coastal town near the port city of Odesa early Friday killed at least 21 people, Ukrainian authorities reported a day after Russian forces withdrew from a strategic Black Sea island.

Video of the pre-dawn attack showed the charred remains of buildings in the small town of Serhiivka, about 50 kilometres southwest of Odesa. Ukrainian news reports said missiles struck a multi-storey apartment building and a resort area.

"A terrorist country is killing our people. In response to defeats on the battlefield, they fight civilians," said . . .
