“The aggressor targeted port infrastructure in the Odesa region. Unfortunately, two people were killed -- a security guard and a truck driver,” governor Oleg Kiper said.

It was unclear whether the deaths were caused by direct hits, or falling debris from destroyed missiles.

The southern defense forces said Russia launched a ballistic missile and four guided missiles at the southern port.

“As a result of active countermeasures, three enemy Kh-59/Kh-69 missiles did not reach their targets,” it added.

Separately, a 62-year-old man was killed in Russian shelling on the southern city of Nikopol.

The air force said that 14 out of 20 drones launched over Ukraine were destroyed.

The news comes two days after a rare daytime attack on the Ukrainian capital killed 34 people according to an up-dated toll from Kyiv’s military administration.
