Ukraine: Russian Air Strikes Claim One Life in Kyiv and Odesa

KYIV—Russia carried out air strikes on Kyiv and the southern Ukrainian region of Odesa early on Wednesday, killing one person and causing a fire and damage at a Danube River port, Ukraine’s military said.

During a nearly three-hour drone attack on Odesa, several agricultural and port facilities were damaged, and several fires were reported in the Izmail district, an important grain exporting hub on the Danube, said regional governor Oleh Kiper.

“An employee of an agricultural enterprise, who was seriously injured, died in the hospital,” Mr. Kiper said.

Mr. Kiper did not name the port. Agriculture consultancy APK-Inform said there had been a fire at the small Kilia river port.

Ukraine operates several river ports on the Danube as well as two major ports, Reni, and Izmail, which have previously been attacked by Russian drones. Kilia, which focuses on dry cargo, was attacked for the first time, APK-Inform said.

Reuters could not independently verify the reports. There was no immediate comment by Moscow.

Russia also launched missiles at Kyiv early on Wednesday, though Ukrainian air defense systems shot them all down, officials claimed.

Falling debris damaged the facades of buildings, private cars, and windows in a medical facility and a police office, officials said. No casualties were reported in the capital.

Reuters’ witnesses in Kyiv heard several blasts which sounded like air defense systems being deployed at around 0550 a.m. (0250 GMT.)
