Russia struck the Danube port of Izmail from the air

Two people were injured after a Russian airstrike overnight on the key Ukrainian grain export port of Izmail, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

Odesa Oblast Governor Oleh Kiper wrote on Telegram that a port building, storage facilities and more than 30 trucks and cars were damaged in the attack, which lasted more than two hours.

Izmail is a key Danube port to which Ukraine shifted grain exports after Moscow unilaterally pulled out of the Black Sea Grain Corridor deal in July. Since then, the city has been subject to numerous air attacks, mainly targeting its port infrastructure.

Ukraine's military said it shot down 26 of the 38 Iranian strike drones it said were fired by Russia overnight Tuesday.

Separately on Tuesday, a Russian missile strike also damaged a local enterprise in the southern Ukrainian city of Kryvyi Rih, Mayor Oleksandr Vilkul said.

Russia said it had repelled several attacks from Ukraine overnight, including against Sevastopol in Crimea, as well as in the Kursk and Belgorod regions bordering Ukraine.

A drone attack by Ukraine against Russia's Kursk caused a power outage in about seven settlements in the region, its governor Roman Starovoit announced.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said its air defense systems had destroyed a drone launched by Ukraine over Kursk at around 5: 30 a.m.
