Ukraine officials are working to get grain moved after Russian missile strike

Port workers in Ukraine are working to restart grain exports after a Russian missile hit the Odesa harbor. The strike came one day after Ukraine and Russia signed a deal to allow exports from the country.

The Ukrainian military says the missiles did not hit the port’s grain storage area or cause any significant damage, and Kyiv said preparations to resume grain shipments were ongoing.

Economic advisors say 60 million tons of grain are expected to move out over the next nine months, but any further attacks would delay the process up to two years.
