Russian drone attacks on the city of Odesa overnight on Feb. 8 damaged an unfinished multi-story building, as well as the building of an educational institution, Odesa Oblast Governor Oleh Kiper reported.

Kiper notes that no casualties or injuries were reported as a result of the attack.

The drone strikes resulted in shattered glass at the unfinished multi-story building, along with a pierced roof, damage to the ceilings, and broken windows at the educational institution building.

Emergency response workers and law enforcement officials are on site documenting the extent of the damage. No further details were provided on the attack.
