 The Ukrainian Red Cross suspended operations in Odesa after a Russian missile struck its warehouse in the southern port city.

“As a result of a missile strike in Odesa region on May 8, the leased warehouse of the Odesa regional organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society with an area of 1,000 square meters was completely destroyed,” the Ukrainian Red Cross said in a statement on Monday.

The organization went on to say there had been no casualties.

“The fire completely destroyed the humanitarian aid for Odesa region that was stored in the warehouse,” it added. “There were no representatives of the Red Cross at the site at the time of the missile strike.”

A total of eight missiles were launched at Odesa overnight Sunday, killing one and injuring three. Russian missile attacks were also recorded in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, according to Ukraine's military.
