Russian drone attacks hit Danube River port infrastructure and injured two truck drivers overnight, a Ukrainian military official said Tuesday.
A crossing point, warehouses and about 30 trucks were damaged in the attacks on Izmail district in the southern region of Odesa, said Oleh Kiper, head of the region's military administration.
“For two hours, Russian terrorists attacked the Odesa region with attack drones,” Kiper said on Telegram, adding that Ukrainian air defenses shot down most of the unmanned aerial vehicles.
Odesa's Danube River ports, located close to the border with Romania, have been repeatedly targeted by Russia following the collapse of the Black Sea grain deal in July.
The latest attacks come after Russian strikes on the city of Odesa killed at least two people and caused "significant damage" to port infrastructure, Ukrainian officials said Monday.
