Russian Missiles Fall Across Ukraine as Grain Export Deal Extended for 120 Days

HeadlineNov 17, 2022

Russian missiles rained down on several parts of Ukraine overnight, including the capital Kyiv. At least four civilians were reportedly killed in Zaporizhzhia, and many more were injured in Russian strikes on Kharkiv, Dnipro and Odessa. Ukrainian officials say Russia is continuing to target civilian infrastructure, disrupting supplies of water, electricity and heat for millions of people as temperatures fall below freezing.

The latest Russian attacks came as Ukrainian, Turkish and United Nations officials agreed to a 120-day extension of a deal to protect ships carrying grain exports out of Ukraine’s Black Sea ports. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Russian President Vladimir Putin has also approved the extension.
