In Odesa, the occupiers damaged one of the high-voltage power facilities of "Ukrenergo", as a result of which residents of the Peresyp district were left without electricity. Emergency blackouts are being introduced in the city and district — the situation with electricity remains difficult.

The Russians also targeted an energy facility in the Mykolayiv region — a fire broke out there, but there were no casualties. The wreckage of the drone also damaged houses in Mykolaiv. Previously, 11 people were injured in the city — 9 of them received medical help on the spot, and two were hospitalized.
