Russian missiles bomb Odessa port

Russian missiles struck the port of Odessa, sparking condemnations for the attack on a port that’s crucial for wheat exports.

However, the Russians said they struck a warship and a warehouse where U.S. weapons that can destroy warships were stored.

Ukrainian officials said grain-loading facilities remain intact and grain-industry damage was limited to one silo.

Russia, Turkey and the United Nations recently brokered a deal to enable Ukrainian wheat esports.

The Ukraine was supplying about 25 per cent of the world’s wheat exports before the Russian invasion began earlier this year.
