NYPost: Russian drone strikes leave 1.5 million without power in Ukrainian port of Odessa  

Russia’s drone strikes have left the Ukrainian port of Odessa in the dark, officials say — as one prominent Russian blogger asserted some military officers are fuming over President Vladimir Putin’s lousy war execution. 

About 1.5 million people in Odessa had no electricity after Iranian-made drones hit two energy facilities, knocking out power to all non-critical infrastructure. 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky acknowledged the situation in the region was “very difficult.”
