Air defense in Odesa Oblast downed seven Russian attack drones, the Southern Defense Forces reported on the evening of Dec. 22.

Russia frequently attacks Odesa Oblast, in particular its port and grain export infrastructure.

"All seven enemy targets were shot down," but one explosion damaged the windows of an educational institutions in Odesa district, the report said.
