Russia continues its attacks on Ukraine's port cities, Moscow has stepped up unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) strikes against sensitive Ukrainian targets following its withdrawal from the grain deal, Governor of Odesa, Oleh Kiper said in his statement on social media.

"Russian terrorists attacked the Odessa region twice with drones last night," he said, adding that the main target was the port and grain infrastructure in the south of the region.

Head of the Ukrainian Presidential Office Andriy Yermak stated that the drones targeted the port of Reni and that there were no casualties in the attacks. It was learned that the work at the port continued without interruption after the attack.

In the statement made by the Ukrainian Air Force, it was announced that 13 UAVs were destroyed over the Odesa and Mykolaiv regions in the south.


On July 22, 2022, Russia and Ukraine signed the grain deal on the initiative of the United Nations (UN) and Türkiye.

The agreement, which was first signed for 120 days, was later extended three times. Russia had decided not to extend the agreement, which expired on July 17, 2023, because the barriers to the sale of its food products had not been removed.

Seeking to prevent Ukraine from exporting grain, Russia has stepped up its use of force and continues to target Ukrainian ports along the Danube River, an important route for grain exports.
