Russian Strikes Kill 3 in Ukraine

Russian strikes killed three people in southern Ukraine, including at the Black Sea port of Odesa, authorities said on Wednesday.

Russia has carried out nightly attacks on cities across Ukraine since launching its invasion in February 2022.

"The aggressor targeted port infrastructure in the Odesa region. Unfortunately, two people were killed — a security guard and a truck driver," Governor Oleh Kiper said.

It was unclear whether the deaths were caused by direct hits, or falling debris from destroyed missiles.

The southern defense forces said Russia launched a ballistic missile and four guided missiles at the southern port.

"As a result of active countermeasures, three enemy Kh-59/Kh-69 missiles did not reach their targets," it added.

Separately, a 62-year-old man was killed in Russian shelling in the southern city of Nikopol.

The air force said that 14 out of 20 drones launched over Ukraine were destroyed.

The news comes two days after a rare daytime attack on the Ukrainian capital killed 34 people according to an updated toll from Kyiv's military administration.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
