Russia attacks Kyiv, port and infrastructure of Odesa

Kyiv, Aug 2 (EFE).- Russia again overnight launched a drone attack on both Ukraine’s capital region and the port and infrastructure of Odesa region on the shores of the Black Sea.

“At night, the enemy directed attack UAVs to the south of Odesa region,” the regional governor Oleh Kiper wrote on his Telegram channel Wednesday morning.

“As a result of the attack, fires broke out at the region’s port facilities and industrial infrastructure. A grain silo was damaged,” he said.

Emergency services were at the scene.

The attack, according to the governor, occurred at 5.30 am local time (02:30 GMT) and so far there have been “no reports of casualties.”

Since it left the grain deal, Russia has been attacking Ukrainian port infrastructure.

Russia also launched an attack overnight against Kyiv with more than 10 Iranian-made Shahed drones from various directions, reported the head of the capital city’s military administration, Serhiy Popko.

All were shot down by air defense forces and no casualties were reported.

President Vladimir Zelenskyy confirmed the attacks on his Telegram on Wednesday morning.

“Another night of war, another night of the work of our heroic air defense. We defend ourselves to the maximum of our available forces. Many ‘shaheds’ were shot down,” he wrote.

“Fortunately, there were no casualties. Unfortunately, there is damage (…) Russian terrorists again attacked ports, grain, and global food security,” he said, adding that it was a “threat to everyone on all continents.” EFE
