Russian drone attack overnight damaged part of the infrastructure in Ukraine’s Black Sea port of Odessa

A Russian drone attack overnight damaged part of the infrastructure in Ukraine’s Black Sea port of Odessa, which is key for grain exports, the Ukrainian military said Monday. “A fire broke out in the port infrastructure in Odesa as a result of the intervention. It was quickly extinguished. Information on the extent of the damage is being updated,” the army’s Southern Command said on Facebook.

The military did not specify whether the damage at the port threatened grain exports. Only through ports in the Odesa region can Ukraine export grain and other foodstuffs under the grain initiative.

Black Sea grain deal last July to help deal with a global food crisis

The United Nations and Turkey brokered an initial 120-day Black Sea grain deal last July to help deal with a global food crisis exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, one of the world’s top grain exporters.

The agreement, which was extended this month, is supposed to guarantee the safe wartime export of grain and food from three Ukrainian ports – Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdennya.

Ukraine’s military said Russian forces used Iranian-made Shahed drones in the attack, but gave no details.

Russia launched a wave of airstrikes in the early hours of Monday on various locations, including the capital Kiev, using drones and cruise missiles.

The capital’s military administration said defense forces shot down more than 40 targets.
