A sea mine exploded that hit some coastal structures in a province Odessa. This was reported by the city council, explaining that the explosion damaged several buildings without causing casualties and that “a second mine was discovered and destroyed near one of the beaches in the area.”
Meanwhile, a Russian airstrike hit two advertisements on two multi-storey buildings Avdiivka, a city in Donetsk Oblast. This was stated by the Chief of Staff of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Andriy Yermak, stating that there were no casualties.
As mentioned a few days ago by Oleksii Dmytrashkivskyi, the Ukrainian military spokesperson, the Avdiivka region is currently one of the most active areas on the Ukrainian front line, but the Russian forces are “exhausted”. Dmitrashkevsky said on national television that the Russian forces are trying to surround the city of Avdiivka, which is considered “the second Bakhmut”, and attack Marinka, adding that “there were no losses in the territory.”
Avdiivka has been a frontline city since Russia first invaded Donbass in 2014 and was largely destroyed. It is located just 10 kilometers north of the city center of Russian-occupied Donetsk.
