Explosions were heard in the city of Odesa in southern Ukraine early Tuesday, about 24 hours after an apparent Ukrainian attack on the Kerch Bridge that connects the annexed Crimean Peninsula with mainland Russia.

The Uncovered News team heard air raid sirens around 2 a.m. local time and saw air defenses operating across the city, followed by four large explosions. Subsequently, it heard four additional explosions and a string of anti-aircraft fire in the port vicinity.

We were not able to confirm where the strikes landed or what the targets were. Serhiy Bratchuk, a spokesperson for the Odesa military administration, said the Ukraine air defense was repelling a Russian air attack.

Searchlights were seen coming from the direction of Odesa’s port. The crew captured an object on fire falling out of the sky as well as one large explosion, followed by a large bang.

Additionally, He urged residents to stay in shelters until the air raid sirens ended. At around 4:16 a.m. local time, he posted that the air alert was over for the Odesa region.

Some background to remember:
A Ukrainian security official on Monday claimed Kyiv’s responsibility for an attack on the bridge, a vital supply line for Russia’s war effort in Ukraine and a personal project for President Vladimir Putin.

The Russian president described the strike as a “terrorist attack” and vowed Moscow would respond.
Shortly after midnight local time, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin said travel had resumed on one lane on the bridge.
