The city is increasing the number of medium and large buses on the main transit routes in the city amid the temporary suspension of powerless electric public transport, which is being moved to depots.

Eight Russian Shahed kamikaze drones were intercepted by the Ukrainian air defense forces over Odesa Oblast overnight. The falling debris from the downed drone caused a fire in one of the region's power plants, leaving several settlements without electricity.

The fire was extinguished. No casualties were reported.
