At least one Russian rocket hit the Grande Pettine hotel in Odessa, which locals call “the stronghold of the Russian world.”

According to CNN , when the pro-Russian movement in Odessa was at its peak (about 10 years ago), conferences dedicated to the brotherhood of Ukraine and Russia were held in the Grande Pettine complex, located on the seashore. One of them called “Challenges of the global crisis: the unity of Ukraine and Russia.”

Journalists also note that this place has attracted leading Russian talk shows and some Russian politicians. 

Last weekend, at least one Russian rocket flew into the hotel building.

“From the explosions of enemy shells, the buildings of the hotel and restaurant complex were destroyed and damaged. The object of the communal infrastructure was also damaged. There were no victims or injured. Fortunately, there were no people in the complex during the rocket attacks,” the prosecutor’s office of Odessa reported .
