In the Zaporizhia and Dnipropetrovsk regions, a fire destroyed about 20 hectares of wheat due to Russian shelling.
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine noted that it is not wheat that is on fire, it is the food security of the world that is on fire, reports Rubryka.
The fire spread from the territory of the Zaporizhzhia region to the land of the Velikomykhailiv community in the Sinelnyk district of the Dnipropetrovsk region.
The head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional military administration, Mykola Lukashuk, noted that the fire self-extinguished.
He also informed that the russian occupiers shelled the Apostolove community in the Dnipropetrovsk region, in particular the border areas of the village of Novosemenivka, and the power lines there are now cut off. There was also a fire that destroyed almost 5 hectares of stubble, but there were no victims.
The mayor of Apostolove Andriy Osa, commenting on the stubble fire, said that in this way the enemy is trying to hold their positions and prevent the advance of the Armed Forces.
We will remind in the Kherson Region, as a result of hostilities, fires destroy protected forest tracts, which can cause the loss of the green lungs of the region and turn soils into sand mounds and dunes.
As EcoPolitic previously reported, in Zacarpattia the arsonists were destroyed 0.7 hectares of wheat on private allotments and another 7 hectares of dry vegetation of this pasture.
