Enclave member now Ukraine: Russia cut off physical access to the M.Sea and broke the port infrastructure of Odessa (images)
Kiev can not export products – Lost thousands of tons of cereals
Russia is starting to turn Ukraine into a landlocked state with no physical access to the Black Sea, leaving it with only a “geographic connection” for now.
Moscow announced a general maritime blockade of Ukraine announcing that any ship heading to its ports would be targeted. At the same time, he began to dismantle the country’s port infrastructure
The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on 19/07/2023 that it will consider, from midnight on 20 July, all ships bound for the Ukrainian Black Sea ports as potential carriers of military cargo.
In its announcement, the Russian Defense Ministry says that some areas in the northwestern and southeastern parts of the international waters of the Black Sea are temporarily declared dangerous for navigation and that the states under whose flag the ships are traveling will be considered involved in Ukraine’s conflict with Kiev.
The Russian announcement
“In connection with the termination of the Black Sea initiative and the restriction of the maritime humanitarian corridor from 00:00 Moscow time on July 20, 2023, all ships heading to Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea will be considered potential carriers of military cargo,” the ministry said .
“Certain sea areas in the northwestern and southeastern parts of the international waters of the Black Sea have been declared temporarily dangerous for navigation. “Relevant informational warnings regarding the withdrawal of security guarantees for seafarers have been issued in the prescribed manner,” the ministry stressed.
Incalculable disasters in Odessa
Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, accused Russia of deliberately targeting facilities used to export Ukrainian grain in early morning strikes, three days after the grain deal expired.
“Russian terrorists deliberately targeted the infrastructure of the grain agreement,” Zelensky complained via Telegram, adding that he was seeking to “strengthen the protection of persons and port infrastructure” to counter Russian attacks.
According to the minister responsible for the Reconstruction of Ukraine, “the grain terminals and port infrastructure of Odessa and Chornomorsk were attacked.”
“The warehouses and docks of the port of Odessa suffered damage,” he says in a statement on Telegram.
Agriculture Minister Mykola Solski said a “significant” part of the infrastructure where grain is stored for export at the port of Chernomorsk, in Ukraine’s Odessa region, was damaged by the Russian attack.
He also said the attack destroyed 60,000 tons of grain that should have been loaded and exported by ship under the Black Sea Grain Agreement 60 days ago.
Ukraine’s general prosecutor’s office announced, also on Telegram, that this was “the biggest Russian attack” in the region, “grain and oil terminals were damaged”, as well as “houses, agricultural facilities and cars”.
Earlier, Ukraine’s army and air force announced that they had destroyed 23 of 32 Russian forces drones and 13 of 16 Russian Kalibr missiles in the Odesa region, home to the three ports through which Kiev could export agricultural products, under the deal that expired at midnight Monday.
Miroshnik: Russian Forces have begun dismantling Odessa’s port infrastructure
According to Rodion Miroshnik, Lugansk’s former ambassador to Russia , the Russian Armed Forces attacked the commercial ports in Odessa and Chernomorsk, Rybny port, Odessa airport, Shkolny airport, as well as bridges at the mouth of the Dniester and on the Dniester at Mayaki.
“Confirmations are coming that they began to actively dismantle the port infrastructure of Odessa, which, under the guise of a grain agreement, was filled with weapons and dual-use products,” he stressed .
Also, journalist and analyst Yuriy Podolyaka spoke about numerous attacks on Ukrainian ports. In particular, there were several rocket arrivals at the port of Ilyichevsk, causing the fuel tanks to catch fire.
No physical access to Black Sea
few weeks of Russian Armed Forces attacks on Black Sea port infrastructure could deprive Ukraine of physical access to the sea, leaving Kiev with only “geographical access.”
Russian analysts note that “the capture of Odessa and other Ukrainian port cities on the Black Sea is now very dangerous, the operation will be associated with heavy losses, also due to the presence of a number of long-range anti-ship missiles in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Military experts believe there is a solution to this situation. Literally two weeks will be enough for the Russian armed forces to destroy the Black Sea port infrastructure of Ukraine with the help of long-range weapons.
Missile and drone attacks, due to the presence of many military installations there, their use as launch sites for maritime drones against Russian military and civilian installations.
A country without port infrastructure will only be able to drop boats into the sea.
In this case, Ukraine will retain only a geographical outlet to the Black Sea, losing the physical ability to send and receive, at least, large ships.”

The US has no plans to assist ships in entering Ukrainian ports, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed on Wednesday, responding to a reporter’s question about the Russian Ministry of Defense’s warning that all ships headed for Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea would be considered military targets.
Washington will “continue to support Ukraine’s effort to get Ukrainian grain to the markets,” Jean-Pierre said, mentioning a $250 million aid package along with seeds, fertilizer, and help with crop storage and processing.
However, when asked how the US planned to “shore up [Ukraine’s] naval capabilities,” she offered only a vague pledge to “make sure they have what they need to defend themselves.”
Port and harbor security equipment was included in the $1.3 billion military aid package announced by the Pentagon on Wednesday. Ukraine will also receive National Advanced Surface to Air Missile Systems, Phoenix Ghost and Switchblade drones, additional artillery rounds and mine clearing equipment, counter-drone and electronic warfare detection equipment, and precision aerial munitions in the latest package, which brings the total amount of military aid supplied by the US since Russia’s military operation began in 2022 to $42.6 billion.
Jean-Pierre’s comments confirmed those of National Security Council spokesman John Kirby, who earlier this week ruled out using US military assets to protect shipments of grain in and out of Ukrainian ports. Instead, the US will “work with other countries” to ensure the grain gets where it needs to go, he said.
Russia withdrew from the Black Sea Grain Initiative on Monday, complaining the US had failed to keep its promises to lift some of the restrictions imposed in the wake of its military operation in Ukraine, including reconnecting its banks to SWIFT, opening an ammonia pipeline to Italy, permitting the import of agricultural machinery and parts, and unblocking transportation insurance and other logistics.
The Kremlin also condemned what it described as a “terror attack” by Ukrainian drones targeting the Crimean bridge, which killed a couple in their vehicle and severely injured their child, but denied it was a factor in the decision to exit the grain deal.
Going forward, all ships traveling to Ukrainian ports “will be considered potential carriers of military cargo,” and the flags of such ships will be seen to be “taking part in the Ukrainian conflict on the side of the Kiev regime,” Russia’s Defense Ministry warned on Wednesday.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky on Tuesday called on the UN and Türkiye to revive the grain deal without Russia, insisting “everything must be done so we can use this Black Sea corridor.”
The Kiev regime is still able to carry out acts of terrorism and sabotage
MELITOPOL, July 19. /TASS/. The Ukrainian military is amassing reserves for an attack on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), acting Zaporozhye Region Governor Yevgeny Balitsky said on Wednesday.
“In the Zaporozhye direction, the situation remains stably tense. Fighters [of the Russian Armed Forces] are courageously defending the frontiers of the Zaporozhye Region. Meanwhile, the enemy is amassing forces, which it plans to send for an attack on the Zaporozhye NPP,” the regional head warned.
“This is yet another enemy attempt to push the world to the brink of a nuclear catastrophe,” Balitsky said on his Telegram channel.
Renat Karchaa, adviser to the chief executive of Russia’s Rosenergoatom nuclear power plant operator, earlier said that the probability of Ukraine’s terror attack against the Zaporozhye NPP remained high.
On July 12, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that its experts had not found any mines or explosives during the nuke plant’s inspection. On the eve of a visit by IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi to Russia on June 23, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky accused Moscow of plotting an act of terror at the Zaporozhye NPP. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov called Zelensky’s allegations a new lie. Adviser to the chief executive of Russia’s Rosenergoatom nuclear power plant operator Karchaa said at the time that the Ukrainian president’s allegations could be a sign that the Kiev regime was plotting a terror attack or a strike on the Zaporozhye nuke plant to draw NATO into the conflict.
The Zaporozhye NPP is Europe’s largest nuke plant. The station was placed under the control of Russian troops in late February 2022.
