The Russian defense ministry said on Tuesday that its missiles had struck an airfield near the Ukrainian port city of Odesa, Russian news agencies reported.

It said it had carried out the strikes in response to a Ukrainian attack on gas production platforms in the Black Sea. Reuters was not able to independently verify the report.

The Russian-installed leader of Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014, said on Monday that Kyiv had struck Black Sea drilling platforms owned by a Crimean oil company.
