Scenes of horror as Tu-22M3 long-range supersonic missile carrier bombers attacked Odesa. Kh-22 missiles offer high speed (complicating interception) & a lethal one-ton warhead. The Tu-22 ‘backfire’ was designed for potential use in war against NATIO nations. Odesa is around 70KM from Transnistria & NATO member Romania is in close proximity. Transnistria is a tiny unrecognised Russian-speaking area that broke away from Moldova.
