Russia Hits Grain Terminals in Latest Attack on Ukraine’s Food Infrastructure
- Attack on grain terminals deals another blow to Ukraine’s beleaguered food-export capabilities.
- Crash of a drone allegedly controlled by Kyiv sparks fire at a large Russian refinery.
- Russia has been conducting simulated missile attacks on Estonia, escalating tensions along NATO’s northeastern border.
- Russian troops took several villages south of the eastern Ukrainian city of Severodonetsk.
Russian forces targeted at least two large North American-owned grain terminals in the Ukrainian port of Mykolaiv on Wednesday, as part of what Kyiv and Western governments say is a campaign to degrade Ukraine’s ability to export food.
The strikes came as a major Russian oil-and-gas refinery close to the Ukrainian border was set ablaze after a drone, allegedly controlled by Kyiv’s forces, crashed into it Wednesday morning, according to the plant’s management.
