Russian forces attacked the city of Odesa overnight on Jan. 17, injuring three people, Odesa Oblast Governor Oleh Kiper reported.

Kiper first reported the attack at around 2:15 a.m. local time. He said Russian forces used attack drones to strike the city.

A 62-year-old man sustained a shrapnel wound and is receiving medical treatment. The other victims are a 69-year-old woman and a 29-year-old woman, who are also receiving medical attention.

The attack also damaged housing and caused multiple fires. Kiper said that 130 people have been evacuated from the damaged apartment building.

Emergency workers are on site, and the full extent of the casualties and damage is still being investigated.
