Ukraine President Zelenskyy warns Russia preparing to shell historic port city Odessa

Russian soldiers are prepared to bomb Odessa, a historic port city on the Black Sea coast, according to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

“This is going to be a military crime,” says the narrator. He exclaimed, “This is going to be a historical crime.”

Since their February 24 invasion, Russian forces have made progress in southern Ukraine, overrunning the city of Kherson and besieging the port of Mariupol, but Odessa has been largely spared.
