Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Oleh Kiper, head of the Odesa Oblast, home to the key port of Odesa, says that Russia has attacked grain warehouses along the Danube River in the cities of Reni and Izmail. Since Russia withdrew from the Black Sea Grain Initiative, it has attacked Odesa nightly, destroying an estimated 60,ooo tonnes of grain in the past week alone. But now, the attacks have expanded to ports upriver.  Ukrainian officials said that four people were injured, one seriously in the attacks which consisted of an estimated 15 Iranian-made drones.  Aside from the affect on the global food supply, grain rose 8% the day after Russia withdrew from the grain deal. The latest attacks are a cause for concern as Reni and Izmail lie just across the river from NATO-member Romania.  Romanian President Klaus Iohannis condemned the attack and its close proximity to his country. Meanwhile, Russia accuses Ukraine of another drone attack on Moscow
