Russia sends missile strikes to two Ukrainian ports


Russian missiles have struck two Ukrainian ports in Odesa and Mykolaiv after a series of explosions in Crimea. Analysts tell Dow Jones they believe it is part of a bigger effort to remove Russian forces from territories.

The head of the Odesa regional military administration says rockets landed on the city early this morning and missiles were fired from an aircraft, injuring about four residents. The other missiles struck a university in Mykolaiv.

The strikes came a day after explosions hit Crimea for the second time in less than two weeks. Yesterday’s attack forced more than 3,000 people to evacuate and caused the suspension of a nearby rail line.
