Russian troops launched two guided missiles at Odesa on March 29, injuring at least five people, including three children, the local authorities reported.

Both missiles were intercepted by Ukrainian air defense systems, but the debris fell in some city districts.

According to Kiper, three people, including 15-year-old and 10-year-old children, were injured by the falling fragments as of around 3:00 p.m. local time. All the victims were hospitalized.

"The injuries are light. Fortunately, their life is not in danger," Kiper wrote on his Telegram channel.

Later on, Mayor Hennadii Trukhanov said that the number of injured rose to five as of 6:00 p.m. local time.
