VIDEO: Grainy Images: Russian Rocket Destroys Grain Warehouse At Ukrainian Agricultural Plant

The strike was filmed at an agricultural plant in the district of Synelnykove in the Ukrainian region of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.

This is the moment a Russian missile can be seen briefly shortly before it destroys a warehouse filled with grain.

The strike was filmed at an agricultural plant in the district of Synelnykove in the Ukrainian region of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.

Regional governor Valentyn Reznichenko, 50, said the missile destroyed the agricultural warehouse, but no one was injured in the attack.

He said on 2nd May: “The rocket hit the plant and destroyed the warehouse with grain. No one was injured.”

The governor added: “Our agricultural warehouses do not give the orcs any peace of mind.”

According to local reports, the Russian military fires on communities in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast up to six times a day.

One day before, a Russian attack destroyed another warehouse with grain in the same area. Meanwhile, a rocket reportedly hit a private farm and killed a cow, injured a 71-year-old woman, and burned almost two tons of hay.

The Russian military also allegedly fired missiles at empty farmhouses in the same district on 30th April. No one was injured in the attack.

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin called a “special military operation”. Today marks the 68th day of the invasion.

From 24th February to 2nd May, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at around 23,800 personnel, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian military also claims that Russia has lost 1,048 battle tanks, 2,519 combat armored vehicles, 459 artillery systems, 152 MLR systems, 80 anti-aircraft systems, 194 warplanes, 155 helicopters, 1,824 vehicles, 8 vessels, 76 fuel tank trucks, 271 operational-tactical level UAVs, 38 units of special equipment, and four mobile SRBM systems.

The UK has also released data claiming that they believe more than a quarter of the ground combat forces committed to the war in Ukraine have likely been “rendered combat ineffective” because of their losses.

The news comes as President Putin has reportedly agreed “in principle” to the evacuation of civilians from the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol by representatives of the United Nations and the International Committee for the Red Cross. The Russian leader made the concession to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres during a meeting in Moscow.

In the latest update, it was revealed that 100 civilians already evacuated from the besieged steel works were expected to arrive in the Ukrainian-controlled city of Zaporizhzhia shortly.

Elsewhere in the fighting, Russia’s Defense Ministry claimed that a missile strike destroyed a hangar and the runway at a military airport near the coastal city of Odesa. They claimed that the hangar contained Western-supplied weapons and ammunition.

Fighting has also intensified in Ukraine’s Kharkiv region where the regional governor Oleh Synehubov said the people in the north and east of the city of the same name should remain in shelters because of heavy Russian bombing.

And the governor of the Luhansk region, Serhiy Gaidai, urged people in his city to leave while they still could.
