Russia launched an air attack on a major Ukrainian port, Reuters reported. This information was also confirmed by the Ukrainian Air Force. The shelling came hours before a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan over a deal on Ukraine's grain exports across the Black Sea.
On the night of Sunday to Monday, Russia carried out an air attack on one of Ukraine's main grain export ports, Izmail on the Danube, Reuters reported.
The attack took place hours before Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan were scheduled to meet in Sochi on Monday.
The shelling lasted more than three hours. The Ukrainian Air Force reported that another group of strike drones appeared in the Kilia region of the Odessa region. Enemy troops were moving along the border with Romania. A moment later, information appeared about unmanned aerial vehicles flying towards Izmail.
"Izmail district, I emphasize the need for everyone to stay in safe places! Filming the work of the air defense forces is strictly prohibited" - Oleg Kiper, head of the Odessa regional military administration, alarmed on social media.
During the talks, Putin and Erdogan are to focus on an agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea. Ankara is trying to get Moscow to reconcile it, Reuters reported.
After withdrawing from the agreement in July, Russia began frequent attacks on Izmail, which is now one of the main points on Ukraine's grain export route. Local media reported the sound of explosions coming from the port.
UAVs hit the building of the Federal Security Service in Kurchativ, Kursk region. A fire broke out on the spot.
