Here’s the latest on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its ripple effects across the globe.
- Russia said on Monday that missile strikes on the Black Sea port of Odessa should not undermine the recent grain deal signed by Moscow and Kyiv. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov insisted that Saturday’s strikes, a day after the deal, were “in no way related to infrastructure that is used for the export of grain.” Lifting the blockade of Ukraine’s Black Sea ports is seen as key to easing global food shortages.
- Ukraine says it is pressing ahead with preparations to resume grain exports from Odessa, including a call for shipping companies to take part in a caravan to transport grain. Deputy Infrastructure Minister Vasyl Shkurakov expects the agreement to come into force in the coming days and the first shipment to be this week.

- Ukraine says it is within range of targets in the Kherson region as part of a counteroffensive in the south. All three bridges controlled by Russia leading into the occupied city of Kherson have been damaged over the past week, the U.S.-based Institute for the Study of War said.
- Russia is struggling to extract and repair vehicles damaged by fighting, according to British military intelligence. A repair facility in Barvinok, near the border with Ukraine, had some 300 damaged vehicles, including tanks and trucks inside, Britain reports.
- Rescue teams in the city of Chuhuiv have been digging through the rubble of buildings destroyed in overnight attacks in a search for survivors, Oleh Synyehubov, the governor of the Kharkiv region, said in a Telegram post….
