An agricultural worker was killed and grain infrastructure damaged after Russian drones attacked a Danube River port, a Ukrainian official said Wednesday.
In a Telegram post, Oleh Kiper, chief of the Odesa region military administration, said several settlements were hit in the attack on Izmail district.
Russia has repeatedly targeted Ukrainian shipping infrastructure since it pulled out of the Black Sea grain deal in July. The accord’s collapse pushed up global food prices and fueled fears that the world’s poorest countries would struggle to feed their populations.
Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Turkey's leader Tayyip Erdogan on Monday amid efforts to bring Moscow back into the critical deal, but no major breakthroughs came from the meeting.
