The drones, which had been launched from Russian-occupied Crimea, were downed over Odesa Oblast.

The one remaining drone hit infrastructure in Odesa Oblast, causing a fire to break out, the Southern Defense Forces reported.

The fire was "quickly extinguished" and no casualties were reported.

The cruise missile was downed near the city of Dnipro, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Governor Serhii Lysak said.

The night before, Ukrainian forces downed 18 of 25 attack drones and one of two Kh-59 cruise missiles launched by Russia.
