“The enemy attacked civilian industrial infrastructure in the Danube region,” Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office said on Telegram. “The attack left two injured who were hospitalized,” he added.
However, according to prosecutors, Ukrainian forces managed to shoot down 22 of the 25 drones used in this attack.
The Russian army, in turn, said it had carried out a drone strike against the port of Reni on the border with Romania, a NATO member country.
“Tonight, Russian Air Forces carried out a group attack with drones on fuel depots used to refuel the military equipment of the Ukrainian army in the port of Reni,” the Russian Defense Ministry said, assuring that the aim of the attack was “achieved” and all targets were reached.
Facilities on the Danube, particularly the ports of Reni and Ismaïl, have already been attacked by Russian forces and Romania condemned these attacks.
After suspending the agreement that allowed Ukraine to safely export grain across the Black Sea, Russia increased its attacks on the Odessa and Mykolaiv regions in southern Ukraine, where there are ports and other infrastructure critical to this trade.
