Russian drone attack on Odesa residential building results in seven deaths

At least seven people, including a three-year-old and a mother with a small kid, have died as a result of a Russian drone strike on an apartment building in the port city of Odesa in southern Ukraine, according to local authorities. The bodies of a mother and her three-month-old child were discovered by rescuers in Odesa, Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko announced in a post on the Telegram app on Saturday. Smoke billowed from the debris that lay scattered on the ground, where the drone had torn a section of the building several stories above. In the wrecked heap of steel and concrete dangling off the side of the apartment building, clothes and furniture were strewn everywhere.


The State Emergencies Service of Ukraine shared pictures, one of which showed rescuers placing a deceased toddler in a body bag. It’s hard to forget this! You cannot forgive this,” it wrote. It stated that five individuals, one of them a youngster, had been saved alive. Governor Oleh Kiper of the Odesa region reported that eight people had been injured, and rescuers were still searching beneath the rubble for more victims. Three people were killed by separate shelling attacks on the front-line regions of Kharkiv, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia, according to Ukrainian officials.


Zelenskyy reiterated his demands for the West to provide additional air defense systems in response to the wave of strikes. “Our allies must provide us with better air defenses. To further safeguard our people from Russian tyranny, we must fortify the Ukrainian air shield. He declared, “More air defense systems and missiles for air defense systems save lives. As a vital $60 billion aid package is stalled in the US Congress, Ukraine finds itself at a disadvantage in the two-year conflict.
