"This is reprehensible and below even the Kremlin’s playbook. The EU’s full support to Ukraine and its brave people will not waver," he concluded.

A powerful explosion occurred in Odesa shortly before the Greek Prime Minister's meeting with Ukraine's President. An air-raid warning was issued in the region. According to media reports, no members of the Greek delegation were injured.

Later, the Greek prime minister stated that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was present in the port during the attack.
