Russian attack in Kherson-Odessa: death toll rises to 11

A Russian strike killed one person in Ukraine’s Kherson region on Sunday, and the death toll from a drone strike in the city of Odessa rose to 10. The concerned authority has informed us of this information.

Ukraine’s Interior Ministry reported on Sunday that one person was killed and three others were wounded in the southern Kherson region in a Russian attack.

In addition, the bodies of another woman and her eight-month-old baby were found in the southern Black Sea port city of Odessa after a Russian drone strike on Friday and Saturday.

According to earlier accounts, the eight dead included a seven-month-old baby and a two-year-old baby.

Odessa region governor Oleg Kiper said in a Telegram post that “the body of a dead woman” was being pulled from the rubble. After a few minutes, he again said that another child’s body was found next to the dead body of the woman.

According to Interior Minister Igor Klymenko, eight people were reported killed in an attack that destroyed a nine-story building on Saturday.

About 100 rescuers were searching for about 10 missing people late Saturday night.

In addition, five people were injured in Russian attacks in the eastern Donetsk region between Saturday and Sunday, local officials said.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged Western allies to provide more air defense systems to counter Russian attacks in the third year of the war.

“We need more air defense from our partners,” Zelensky said in a post on social media on Saturday.
We need to strengthen Ukraine’s air shield to add more protection for our people from Russian terrorism. More air defense systems and more missiles will save lives.
