Ukrainian air defense forces shot down 13 missiles over Odesa Oblast during a fresh Russian massive missile strike early on Feb. 10, regional governor Maksym Marchenko reported via the Telegram messenger.
“The enemy launched a massive missile attack on the territory of Ukraine from strategic aircraft and cruise missile carriers,” he said.
“As usual, Odesa’s air defense units did a great job and shot down 13 missiles over the oblast.”
Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukraine on Feb. 10. Missile launches were recorded in several waves, including from ships deployed in the Black Sea, as well as Russian strategic bombers.
Ukrainian military sources have said that 61 out of 71 missiles Russia fired at targets in Ukraine were shot down. Another five Iranian Shahed flying bombs, which Russia uses to attack Ukraine, were also shot down, although there have been no reports yet of how many were launched.
There were reports of damage to energy infrastructure in several regions of the country.
An air raid alert was triggered throughout Ukraine and lasted for three-and-a-half hours, almost until noon.
