The enemy is trying to terrorize the rear regions and reminds Odessa that it is in its priorities, Gumenyuk said.

During the air raid in the Odessa region, most of the Russian missiles were shot down over the Black Sea, said Natalya Gumenyuk, speaker of OK Yug, on the air of the telethon.

At the same time, she added that there is already a recorded hit on an industrial object.

“And, unfortunately, there is already one dead and two wounded guards. Absolutely civilian people, absolutely civilian objects. As always, the enemy is trying to terrorize the rear regions and reminds Odessa that it is in its priorities,” Gumenyuk added.

According to Gumenyuk, the enemy is annoyed by the supply of Western air defense systems to Ukraine and the success of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in intercepting Russian missiles. Thus, Russia is trying to deplete the strengthened air defense system.

Separately, OK “South” specifies that during the attack the enemy used different missiles from different directions.
