A ship carrying 32,300 metric tons of corn left Ukraine’s port of Odesa for Tunisia under the Black Sea Grain Initiative, a UN-backed humanitarian sea corridor that has allowed more than 900 ships carrying more than 29 million metric tons of agricultural products to depart Ukrainian ports. Russia has previously stated that it refuses to recognize an extension of the agreement, which could expire by mid-May. The U.N. Coordinator for Ukraine issued a statement expressing concern for the plight of civilians after almost a week of nightly Russian airstrikes that have killed and injured dozens of people and damaged critical infrastructure. Ukrainian officials have announced air raid alerts across the country. Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed preparations for the May 9 Victory Day parade with his Security Council, while a rupture to the dam of southern Ukraine’s Nova Kakhovka could threaten the biggest nuclear power plant in Europe. Wagner group leader Yevgeny Prigozhin said his forces would leave the destroyed city of Bakhmut on May 10, citing a lack of ammunition, while former US President Bill Clinton said he believed in 2011 that it was “just a matter of time” before Putin would invade Ukraine. In a scathing video, Prigozhin criticized Russia’s armed forces and the shortage of ammunition, blaming them for the deaths of his forces.
