Russia Continues Attacks on Black Sea Coast as Ukraine Readies Grain Exports

HeadlineJul 26, 2022

In Ukraine, Russia’s military has fired missiles at several targets on the Black Sea coast, including in Mykolaiv and the southern port city of Odessa. The attacks came even as Ukrainian officials said they were just days away from implementing a United Nations-brokered deal to export grain and cooking oil through Black Sea ports in order to help ease global food shortages. In the northern city of Chuhuiv near Kharkiv, rescuers combed through rubble looking for survivors of Russian missile attacks Monday that hit a local school, crushed homes and completely flattened the city’s House of Culture.

Mayor Halyna Minayeva: “We’re here in the very city center, where the House of Culture is located. There were no soldiers here. It’s simply the House of Culture. Now we see what’s left of it. The house is completely in ruins. There is no chance of rebuilding it.”
