«The New Year’s Eve attack in Odesa was prolonged and severe. Regarding the air raid, it commenced after 11 pm on December 31st, and both the region and Odesa endured a four-hour assault by drones. The port infrastructure suffered damage, particularly the terminal where a fire erupted due to the downing of the Shaheds».

Prokopenko also mentioned casualties in residential buildings, with one Odesa resident killed and five others injured, three of whom are currently hospitalized.

«If we talk about the night in general, the shelling lasted for 4 hours, there were several waves, the «shaheds» came from different directions», – the correspondent said.

As a reminder, on New Year’s Eve, January 1st, Russian troops launched an attack on the Odesa region using attack drones. The air defense forces successfully destroyed 28 Shaheds. A 15-year-old teenager was killed in the attack.
