Russian troops shelled towns and villages in the Kryvyi Rih district of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on the morning of June 30, oblast governor Valentyn Reznichenko said in a Telegram update.
The Zelenodolsk community was shelled with various weapons, he said. In Velyka Kostromka, the center of the village was struck, resulting in destruction.
In the town of Zelenodolsk itself, the enemy hit an agricultural enterprise. A warehouse containing 40 tons of grain was destroyed. The explosion caused a fire.
Early reports suggest no people were hurt.
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has been deliberately shelling grain warehouses in Ukraine, destroying crops and stealing Ukrainian grain. The invaders are also shelling Ukrainian fields with a new crop, causing fires.
In bombing farms, silos and transport infrastructure in Ukraine, the Kremlin’s intention appears to be to cause global food shortages, which, combined with disruptions to energy supplies, it hopes will weaken the West’s resolve to support Ukraine.
