Southern Ukraine hit by strikes from both sides of war – BBC News


Southern Ukraine has been hit by strikes from both sides in the war, with Russia launching drones at Odesa and Ukraine fighting back in Melitopol.

The Ukrainian army said it shot down 10 drones on Saturday but another five had hit energy facilities, leaving some 1.5 million people without power.

Later on, the exiled mayor of Melitopol said a Ukrainian strike had been carried out on the Russia-held city.

Images shared by a Moscow-installed official there showed a big fire.

Russia’s drone attack on the Ukrainian port city of Odesa saw Moscow fire Iran-made drones at key infrastructure, Ukrainian officials said.
