KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Officials say Russia launched three waves of drones and missiles against the southern Ukrainian city of Odesa. The Ukrainian air force says it intercepted all 15 incoming Shahed drones and eight Kalibr missiles. The Odesa region’s governor says falling debris from the interceptions damaged a residential building, a supermarket and a dormitory of an educational facility. He said two supermarket employees were hospitalized. The Kremlin’s forces have pummeled Odesa since Russia last month broke off a wartime deal to protect Ukraine’s crucial grain exports. Meanwhile, the Dutch Defense Ministry and Britain’s air force said they scrambled fighter jets on Monday when Russian bombers were spotted flying toward the airspace of the Netherlands and off Scotland.
