Ukrainian officials say there have been five attacks on the port city of Odesa in recent days by Russian forces using recently acquired Iran made drones.

Russia had launched Iran-made Shahid-136 kamikaze drones against the city “for several days in a row,” Serhii Bratchuk, spokesperson for Odesa region civil military administration, said. “The enemy is trying to save its cruise missiles, missiles of different calibers, because these drones are much cheaper … And they work not alone, but sometimes in pairs. We even note that the enemy may launch several such kamikaze drones during one attack.”
