Russian drones hit Ukrainian port of Odessa


Russian drones hit Ukraine's Black Sea port of Odessa and caused 'damage', local authorities said early Tuesday. 

“The enemy has just hit Odessa and the Odessa district with attacks from UAVs” (unmanned aerial vehicles), the local administration said in a statement posted on Facebook. “There is damage,” she added, without further details.

Quoting the head of the Odessa district military administration, Yuriy Kruk, the statement said that the forces Ukraine's air defenses are at work and warn of the possibility of a second wave of attacks.

Odessa was a favorite vacation destination for many Ukrainians and Russians before the triggering of the invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

Since the beginning of the conflict, Odessa has been repeatedly bombarded by Russian forces.

In January, UNESCO inscribed the historic center of Odessa on the List of World Heritage in Danger.
