Russian forces attacked at least two major North American-owned grain terminals in Ukraine’s port of Mykolaiv on Wednesday, as part of what Kyiv and western governments say is a campaign to worsen Ukraine’s ability to export food.
The strikes came as a major Russian oil and gas refinery near the Ukrainian border was torched after a drone allegedly being controlled by Kiev’s armed forces crashed into it Wednesday morning, according to management.
