Russian drones strike Danube port in Odesa region, destroying grain hangar

The Russian forces continued to terrorize Odesa region last night, launching an almost four-hour attack involving Shahed-136 kamikaze drones at the port infrastructure on the Danube.

That’s according to Operational Command South, Ukrinform reports.

"Three drones were destroyed by air defense forces. As a result of the strikes, a grain hangar was destroyed, tanks for storing other types of cargo were damaged, and a fire broke out in one of the production premises, which was promptly put out," the report says.

Tentative reports say four port workers were injured in the attack. The reports from the ground are being verified.
