Here are the highlights of events related to the war in Ukraine over the past 24 hours:

Rocket attack on Odessa: At least 10 people have died

At least 10 people have died after Russian rocket fire on Odessa last night. A 9-story residential building and a recreation center were damaged. The information is from a spokesperson of the Odessa regional administration.

In recent days, attacks on the port city have become more frequent. The situation in Donbas also remains extremely difficult - in the regions of Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk, fighting continues.

It became known that on the sidelines of the recently concluded NATO summit in Madrid, Germany and Spain discussed the potential delivery of German tanks to Ukraine.

Among the highlights of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's midnight speech was the withdrawal of Russian forces from Snake Island.

He also thanked the Czech Republic, which from today takes over the presidency of the European Council, for announcing the recovery of Ukraine as one of the priorities of its six-month mandate.

"Undoubtedly the most important word today is Snake Island - it was talked about so much on the day the Russian ship arrived. Now it is gone - forever, and the island is free again. Snake Island is a strategic point and significantly changes the situation in the Black Sea. It does not guarantee security, it does not guarantee that the enemy will not return. But it already significantly limits the actions of the occupiers. Step by step, we will expel them from our sea, our land and our sky," said President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
