Russia attacked the Odesa sea port with Kalibr missiles on July 23, two of which hit infrastructure facilities, Odesa regional administration spokesperson Serhiy Bratchuk said in a Telegram messenger post, with reference to the Ukrainian military’s Operational Command South.

Another two missiles were shot down by air defense.

Earlier Ukrainian MP Oleksii Honcharenko said that Odesa had been rocked by six explosions and a fire broke out at the Odesa sea port.

Ukraine signed an agreement on unblocking the export of Ukrainian grain with Turkey and the United Nations on July 22. Russia signed a similar agreement with the United Nations and Turkey.

The agreement concerns exports from the Ukrainian sea ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdennyi. Control over the ports will remain with the Ukrainian side, and no ships, except those that will ensure the export of grain and related products, will be able to enter the ports.

Inspection teams will be set up in Turkey with representatives from all parties to inspect cargo and personnel. The inspection will be carried out only in the harbors, at the entrance and exit from the Turkish Straits.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the movement of vessels to Ukrainian sea ports would be resumed in the coming days.
