At least six civilians have been killed in Ukraine due to Russian bombing and drone attacks. Interior Minister Ihor Klimenko announced today that at least two teachers were killed in a drone attack on a school in the city of Romny in Sumy region, northeastern Ukraine.
According to the authorities, three civilians were killed in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine. At least one person was killed in Russian attacks in the Chersonesos region of southern Ukraine.
The attacks also resulted in numerous casualties in all affected areas. There were also heavy artillery, drone and missile attacks in the neighboring Zaporizhia region. According to the authorities, there were no civilian casualties there.
According to Ukraine’s Military Intelligence Service, it also destroyed a Russian S-400 “Triumph” anti-aircraft system in Crimea in the Black Sea, which has been annexed by Moscow. “As a result of the explosion, the facility, associated missiles and operational personnel were completely destroyed,” the intelligence agency said.
13,000 tons of grain were destroyed
According to Kiev, 13,000 tons of grain were destroyed during the Russian drone attack on the port of Izmail on the Danube. As Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov also reported on Telegram, the port’s export capacities were also reduced by 15 percent as a result of the attack.
“Russia is systematically attacking grain silos and warehouses to stop agricultural exports.” In July, the government in Moscow did not extend an agreement brokered by the UN and Turkey on the safe export of grain from Ukraine. Since then, attacks on the country’s Danube ports, which are used by alternative export routes, have increased.
