On the night of January 25, Russian war criminals launched two waves of Shahed kamikaze drones in Southern Ukraine. The main attack was centered on Odesa. The attack damaged houses and a warehouse and injured six people, according to the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine.

Ukrainian Air Defense Forces managed to shoot down 11 kamikaze drones: 10 in the Odesa region and one in the Mykolaiv region.

Russian troops used tried-and-true tactical tricks: they approached from the sea at low altitudes and resorted to complex maneuvers.

One of their downed drones hit a partially inhabited multi-story building in the Khadzhybeyskyi district of Odesa and caused a fire. Several apartments were damaged, and one person was burned and hospitalized.

Another damaged drone pierced the roof of a two-story residential building in the city's Prymorskyi district when it fell.

Another UAV crashed in the same residential neighborhood, near an apartment building damaged in a previous attack. The blast wave caused a lot of damage to the windows of the surrounding buildings, a car parked in the yard was burnt to ashes, and several others were injured.

In addition, Russians hit the warehouse of a furniture plant in the industrial district of Odesa. A massive fire broke out due to a large amount of flammable substances.

A man who was riding a bicycle nearby was thrown to the ground by the shock wave. He was injured by fragments of various objects that flew from the explosion. The victim received medical assistance.
