A Ukrainian military family perished in Odesa as a result of a Russian attack on March 2nd. The enemy strike also claimed the lives of the defenders' seven-month-old child, according to the Command of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Telegram.

As a result of the Shahed strike on a nine-story building in Odesa, Oleh and Tetiana Kravets lost their lives. They met while in service, and later Tetiana resigned to take care of their newborn daughter. On February 29, she had just turned seven months old.

Tetiana also had two children from a previous marriage: 9-year-old Serhii and 8-year-old Zlata, who are still being sought under the rubble.

It's noted that Oleh's brother perished in the ATO zone in 2014.
