Three civilians were killed during a Russian drone strike in the Ukrainian Black Sea city of Odesa in the early hours of Saturday, after drone debris landed on an apartment building starting a fire, the Ukrainian military said.
Air defenses in the Odesa region shot down eight “Shahed” drones and two missiles in the latest incident in a series of nighttime air strikes on Ukrainian cities in recent weeks, a spokesman for the southern military command said.
Video footage released by the press service of the Ukrainian Armed Forces showed emergency services rescuing residents of the affected residential block, as fires raged in broken windows.
Emergency services said 27 people, including three children, were injured but the fire was quickly brought under control and 12 people were rescued from the building.
