Building in Russia hit by Ukrainian drone
In the southern Russian city of Kursk, about 90 kilometers from the border with Ukraine, an administrative building was hit by a Ukrainian drone. “The roof was slightly damaged. Rescue workers are on site,” Governor Roman Starovoyt said on Telegram.
Last month, a Ukrainian drone caused significant damage to the Kursk train station, injuring five people. In recent months, Kiev has launched almost daily attacks on Russian cities, against the backdrop of a Ukrainian counteroffensive that began in early June against Russian forces.
Bomb attack in the Kherson region
The governor of the Kherson region, Oleksandr Prokudin, announced on Telegram that the Russian bombings on Sunday had caused “deaths and injuries.” According to the governor, a woman and a man died in these attacks. The leader also announced strikes on Sunday afternoon in Kherson, in “an industrial zone in the Dnieper district” and “civil infrastructure in the Korabelny district.”
A second Ukrainian wheat cargo ship to Istanbul
According to maritime traffic monitoring agencies, a second shipment of Ukrainian wheat arrived in Istanbul via the Black Sea on Sunday, September 24. The Aroyat, a Palau-flagged bulk carrier, left Chornomorsk near Odessa on Friday. It is the second ship to use a maritime corridor established by Kiev along the western coast of the Black Sea to bypass Russia’s blockade.
According to the websites Marine Traffic and Vessel Finder, the cargo ship Aroyat, carrying 17,600 tons of Ukrainian wheat to Egypt, was at the southern exit of the Bosphorus in the Sea of Marmara on Sunday morning. It was supposed to head towards the Dardanelles Strait to reach the Mediterranean.
In July, Moscow withdrew from an international agreement signed in July 2022 that ensures the export of Ukrainian agricultural products across the Black Sea.
