On the evening of June 10, Russian occupation forces perpetrated an attack with kamikaze drones on the Odesa region. Subsequently, Ukrainian air defense was able to eliminate all drones successfully. Regrettably, the consequential debris resulted in a fire, leading to three fatalities and over twenty wounded.

The operational command "South" reported that on Facebook.

"During the night drone attack on the Odesa region, all Shahed-131/136 were destroyed by air defense forces.

As a result of the aerial battle, fragments of one of the drones hit a high-rise apartment, causing a fire," the report reads.

A fire of magnitude fifty square meters broke out at the scene, which was swiftly subdued. It is unfortunate, however, that the preliminary report suggests the loss of three civilians and twenty injured persons.

In addition, as emphasized in the message, several apartment buildings around were damaged by the blast wave.

The final information about the victims is being clarified.

The Head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Defense Forces of the South, Nataliia Humeniuk, subsequently announced on the single marathon broadcast that there are 26 individuals confirmed to have been afflicted by injuries and damages due to the blast wave.

Among them are two children and a pregnant woman.

It should be noted that on June 9, an air alert was announced in several regions of Ukraine. A series of explosions rang out in Odesa.

Vladyslav Nazarov, the spokesman of the Operational Command "South," reported on the work of air defense in the Odesa and Mykolaiv regions due to the drone attack.

For reference:

On Thursday evening, June 8, an air alert was announced throughout Ukraine. Monitoring channels wrote that the Russian Federation had launched Kalibr missiles.

Residents of Uman, Cherkasy region, reported an explosion in the region.

It is worth noting that the last time the occupiers attacked Uman was on April 28. Then they destroyed 14 apartments in a high-rise building with a rocket. Twenty-three civilians, including children, died.

Also, on the night of June 9, Russian troops launched up to 16 kamikaze drones and six air-launched cruise missiles over Ukraine.

The Air Force managed to destroy ten attack drones and four cruise missiles. One person died, and three were injured due to falling debris in the town of Zviahel in the Zhytomyr region.
