Civilians have been injured in a new Russian missile attack on Odesa Oblast, the local military administration reported on Facebook on Nov. 17.
An update on the exact number of victims and their condition is expected later.
The strike targeted a local infrastructure facility, regional authorities stated, though did not specify which. State Emergency Service units and police are working on the scene, they added.
The authorities ask citizens not to ignore air-raid sirens.
A number of explosions were heard in other oblast as well on Nov. 17, some caused by successfully intercepted Russian missiles. Others struck their target, such an industrial facility damaged in the city of Dnipro, which injured 23 people.
Kyiv regional authorities stated that all the missiles and suicide drones targeting the capital on Nov. 17 were successfully intercepted, with no reports of damage.
These attacks follow a larger mass missile attack on Nov 15, with over 90 missiles launched that day against nearly every major Ukrainian city. While 77 of the missiles were intercepted,damage to Ukraine’s power grid was significant, prompting blackouts and power cuts to be imposed throughout the country.
