Russian missiles hit Odesa port

The Russian invaders launched a missile strike on the Odesa sea port.

Serhiy Bratchuk, a spokesman of the Odesa regional governor, said in a Telegram post, referring to the Operational Command South.

"The enemy struck the Odesa Commercial Sea Port with Kalibr-type cruise missiles. Two missiles were shot down by air defense forces. Two hit the port’s infrastructure facilities," he wrote.

As reported, following the quadrilateral meeting of Ukraine, Turkey, the UN and Russia in Istanbul on July 22, an agreement was signed to allow exports of grain and other foodstuffs from the ports of Ukraine.

The agreement was signed by Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov on behalf of Ukraine, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on behalf of the UN, and Defense Minister Hulusi Akar on behalf of Turkey.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu signed the agreement in the same format on behalf of Russia.

According to the agreements signed in Istanbul, it is planned to transport Ukrainian grain for export through the Ukrainian ports of Odesa, Pivdennyi and Chornomorsk. The resumption of agricultural exports from Ukrainian ports can bring $1 billion in foreign currency revenue every month.
