Odesa port reopens after energy network hit.



The port in the south of the country was closed after strikes on Saturday leaving 1.5 million people and all non-critical infrastructure without power.

Ukraine’s president said it could take days to restore electricity with the sub-zero temperature expected this week. Odesa is one of three ports being used to ship grain under an UN-brokered deal.

The agreement mediated by Turkey and the UN, allows Ukraine products to be transported safely to the rest of the world. The deal has helped bring down soaring global food prices. Although operations at Odesa port were briefly stopped on Sunday, Ukraine’s agricultural minister said grin exports would not be suspected.
