Ukrainian military intercepts six drones and six cruise missiles launched by Russia overnight

Russia launched six Shahed drones and 10 cruise missiles at the southern part of the Odesa region overnight, the Ukrainian Air Force (UAF) said in a bulletin on Sunday.

All six drones were destroyed by air defence systems, the UAF said. The missiles, six of which were downed by the Ukrainian military, were launched by Tu-95MS strategic bombers flying sorties from Russia's Saratov region. A local agricultural enterprise was hit, according to the bulletin.

On Saturday, the Ukrainian Transport Ministry announced that two cargo ships had begun sailing through a temporary safe corridor to the Black Sea port of Chornomorsk, the first vessels to attempt the journey to Ukraine since Russia's withdrawal from a deal that allowed cargo ships exporting Ukrainian grain safe passage across the Black Sea.
