Russia destroyed the second largest grain terminal in Ukraine, the EU said

Russia, hitting Nikolaev on Saturday, destroyed the second largest grain terminal in Ukraine. This was stated by EU Foreign Minister Josep Borrell.

– Another Russian missile strike, contributing to the global food crisis. Russian troops destroyed the second largest grain terminal in Ukraine in Nikolaev. In light of these reports, disinformation spread by Putin to divert blame becomes even more cynical,” he tweeted.

U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said in his latest briefing that the Russian invasion of Ukraine endangered world food security. At the moment, 84 ships with at least 450 sailors on board cannot leave Ukrainian ports.

– Grain is not only on these ships, about 22 million tons of grain is stored in elevators, and it needs to be taken out to make room for a new crop. In addition, Russia has actually targeted ships at sea. They have targeted grain elevators and are continuing a de facto blockade of Ukrainian ports, a State Department spokesman said.

Price noted that the US is in talks with Ukraine, European allies, Turkey, and the UN.

June 4, Russia fired missiles at Nikolaev, hitting the specialized port “Nika-Tera”, which belongs to Dmitry Firtash. The fire was extinguished until June 6th.

Vladimir Zelensky said that Russia had stolen half a million tons of grain from the temporarily occupied territories.

Presidential adviser Oleg Ustenko assured that Ukraine has grain reserves that can satisfy domestic and global demand at least until the end of 2022.
