As a result of the attack on Odesa in the early hours of July 19, the grain terminals of Kernel, Viterra, and CMA CGM in the ports of Odesa and Chornomorsk were damaged, reported the press service of the Ministry of Infrastructure.

The port infrastructure, which was involved in the work of the grain corridor, was also attacked the night before. As a result, the reservoirs and berths of the Odesa port were damaged.

"An attack on grain terminals is an act of aggression against the world. The goal of Russian terrorists is the destruction of any means of supplying grain to world markets. The terrorist state is at war not only with Ukraine, but with the population of Africa and Asia, for whom this grain is a matter of survival. Grain and port infrastructure must be protected by the world. This is a guarantee, first of all, for the food security of the world," said Minister of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, after the overnight attack on Odesa, instructed to strengthen the protection of the port infrastructure.

The Air Force stated that on the night of July 19, the occupiers attacked Ukraine with Kh-22, Kalibr and Oniks missiles, as well as Shahed-136 kamikaze drones. 26 hits were recorded.
