#War #Ukraine #Developments

Here are the latest developments in the war in Ukraine:

– First UN grain ship due in Ukraine –

The first ship chartered by the United Nations to transport grain from Ukraine under a deal to alleviate a global food crisis is due to dock in Ukraine on Friday, the United Nations says.

The MV Brave Commander left Istanbul on Wednesday and is due to arrive in Yuzhne, east of Odessa on the Black Sea coast, the United Nations World Food Program said.

It will collect Ukrainian wheat grain bought by the WFP, says agency spokesman Tomson Phiri.

On July 22, Kyiv and Moscow signed a landmark deal with Turkey to unblock Black Sea grain shipments following Russia’s February 24 invasion of Ukraine.

WFP initially bought 30,000 tons of Ukrainian wheat. MV Brave Commander has a capacity of 23,000 tons.

– Iran seeks three more Khayyam satellites –

Iran plans to commission three more versions of a satellite launched by Russia this week, prompting allegations of espionage by Moscow in Ukraine.

The Khayyam satellite was launched into orbit on Tuesday by a Soyuz 2.1b rocket from Moscow’s Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Before the launch, the Washington Post quoted anonymous Western intelligence officials as saying that Russia “plans to use the satellite for several months or more” to support its war effort in Ukraine before allowing Iran to take control.

Iran’s space agency on Sunday stressed that it would control the satellite “from day one,” in an apparent response to the Post’s report.

– Bucha buries his unidentified dead –

More than four months after AFP journalists discovered 20 civilian bodies in the Kiev suburb of Bucha on April 2, the first evidence of war crimes in Ukraine, local authorities have started burying the dead, which no one has claimed.

14 bodies were buried on Tuesday, with another 11 following on Thursday. Mykhailyna Skoryk-Shkarivska, an assistant to the mayor of Bucha, told AFP that three more ceremonies are planned.

Of the 458 civilians who died during the Russian occupation of the city in March, about 50 have not been identified.

Almost all of the dead had been hastily buried in mass graves by local residents, as the fierce fighting left them no other choice.

– EU considers visa ban for Russia –

The Czech Republic, which holds the rotating EU presidency, says a blanket visa ban on all Russian travelers could be the bloc’s next sanctions against Moscow.

Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said he would propose the idea at an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Prague at the end of August.

So far, the EU has put together six packages of sanctions against Russia.
