Ukraine’s Southern Defense Forces and the head of the Odesa Regional Military Administration, Oleh Kiper, reported the information.

"Using the tactics of complex maneuvers, the barrage munitions changed course several times, once again following the state border line," the Southern Defense Forces wrote.

They noted that the border and port infrastructure of the Danube region was under attack. The Russian attack damaged a granary and set 9 trucks on fire.

"There are no casualties. All relevant services are working at the scene. Law enforcement agencies are recording another crime of the Russians. The functioning of the ferry crossing has been temporarily suspended," the head wrote.

At the same time, Russian drones tried to attack the Cherkasy region, writes Ihor Taburets, head of the Cherkasy Regional Military Administration.
