A grain supply was destroyed after a series of missile strikes hit multiple locations in the Zaporizhzhia region of Ukraine on Thursday, August 4, according to Oleksandr Starukh, the governor of Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

The grain store located in Novoivanivka, a village in the Zaporizhzhia Oblast region, was not the only infrastructure damaged during the attacks. According to broadcaster Suspilne Zaporizhzhia, the warehouses of an agricultural company, a high-rise building, several private houses, and a highway were also hit during the strikes.

There were no known deaths from the attacks, but one person was injured, Starukh said.

The strikes came days after Ukraine exported its first shipment of grain since the start of the Russian invasion.
