Zelenskyy on Russian strike on Odesa during his visit: They're either insane or have no control over what their terrorist army doing at all

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy commented on the Russian missile attack on Odesa on the day of his visit to the city for a meeting and joint press conference with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

"We saw that blow today. You see who we are dealing with. They don't care where to hit. I don't know all the specific details yet, but I know that there are victims, there are dead, and there are wounded. My condolences to the family and friends," Zelenskyy said at a press conference with the Greek Prime Minister in Odesa on Wednesday.

According to the president, "they [Russia] don't care whether they are military or civilian, no matter who they are. There are also international guests today [in Odesa]. These people don't care. They are either insane, or have no control over what their terrorist army is doing at all. That's what we see," he said.

"This suggests that we need, first of all, to defend ourselves. The best thing is an air defense system. We understand what needs to be done. Our partners have a plan. We are gradually strengthening, but slower than we would like. But, unfortunately this is what it is. But the fact that we are getting stronger every day is also a fact," he said.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Russian army attacked Odesa with a missile while Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis was visiting the city, who was scheduled to meet with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy.

According to Greek media, which cite anonymous sources in the Greek government, the attack was carried out on Zelenskyy's motorcade while he was with the Greek delegation. The explosion occurred shortly before the meeting of the leaders, 150 meters from the location of the delegation from Greece. It is reported that no one in the delegations was injured.
