An overnight Russian missile and drone attack has damaged an agricultural facility in the Odesa region.

Moscow launched six Iranian-made Shahed drones and 10 cruise missiles in the attack, with all but four of the rockets being intercepted, Ukraine’s Air Force said.

There are currently no reports of casualties.

The attack came just hours after it was announced that the first cargo ships were heading to Ukraine to load grain for African and Asian markets since the collapse of a deal with Russia to ensure the safety ships exporting via the Black Sea.

Elsewhere, Russia shot down one Ukrainian drone over the outskirts of Moscow and six others over the annexed Crimean peninsula on Sunday, according to the Ministry of Defence. 

At around 1:45 am (2245 GMT on Saturday) one drone was intercepted over Moscow's Istrinsky district, the defence ministry said in a Telegram post, as reported by AFP.


"According to preliminary data, there was no damage or casualties at the site where the debris fell," Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin wrote in a separate Telegram post. 

"Emergency services specialists are working at the scene." 

Two Ukrainian drones were also destroyed at 1:15 am over the west coast of Crimea, with another four drones detected and destroyed over the peninsula between 1:45 to 2:20 am, according to the ministry.
