NATO border under fire: Russia shells port facility in the Danube Delta

Nighttime drone strikes continue to rock Ukraine, with Odessa and Dnipropetrovsk in focus. As the NATO border is placed on alert, local authorities are reporting significant damage to strategic facilities.

Russia again launched heavy drone strikes on targets in southern and central Ukraine during the night and early Monday morning. “For three and a half hours, Russian terrorists attacked the south of the Odessa region with drones,” the region’s military governor, Oleh Kiper, wrote on Telegram on Monday. Although 17 drones were shot down, there were also several impacts. In the Izmail district, for example, storage rooms, production halls, industrial plants and agricultural equipment were damaged.

Attacks on the Romanian NATO border

According to Russian military bloggers, the port infrastructure in the Danube Delta was again attacked in the Odessa region. An oil facility was damaged in the port city of Reni on the border with Romania. This information could not initially be verified independently. After the agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain via the Black Sea expired, Russia has repeatedly shelled ports in Ukraine.

Attacks were also reported in the morning from the industrial region of Dnipropetrovsk. A fire broke out as a result of a hit in an infrastructure object, military governor Serhiy Lyssak said on his Telegram channel. He did not provide any further information about the damage. Six drones were shot down.

According to preliminary information, there were dead and injured neither in the Odessa region nor in Dnipropetrovsk.
