Russian missile attacks targeting the Ukraine’s Black Sea coast destroyed 60,000 tons of grain and posed substantial damage to storage infrastructure. Mykola Solskyi, the Agriculture Minister of Ukraine said that a “considerable amount” of export infrastructure is out of operation, posing further damages to the economy. This was the result of Russia having pulled out of a deal that allowed safe passage of exports. Russian President Putin accused the West of using the grain deal as “political blackmail.”
