At least one person was killed after Russian drone strikes in the Odessa region of southern Ukraine, the region’s governor, Oleh Kepper, said.
The attacks, which occurred on Wednesday night, targeted the area around Ismail and lasted for three hours, the governor wrote on the messaging service Telegram.
The port city of Izmail is located on the Danube River and borders Romania, a NATO member. The region has become an important export route for Ukrainian goods after Russia’s withdrawal from the grain agreement.
The governor said the port area and infrastructure related to agriculture were damaged in the attacks.
“Unfortunately, one person died,” Kiber said, adding that this person was an agricultural worker who died in hospital of his injuries.
Russia also launched several bots into the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, on Wednesday night, according to Serhiy Popko, the head of the Kiev military department.
Popko says all the robots were shot down before they reached their targets.
“Another enemy robotic attack on a peaceful city with the aim of killing the civilian population and destroying the infrastructure,” he wrote on Telegram.
According to the Ukrainian rescue service, the wreckage caused a fire in a commercial building in the area. However, it was possible to extinguish the fire.
“No dead or injured have been found,” the rescue service wrote on a telegram.
