Ukraine’s leading grain exporter, wife killed in Russian strikes on port city of Mykolaiv

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described Vadatursky’s death as “a great loss for all of Ukraine”, saying the businessman had been in the process of building a modern grain market involving a network of trans-shipment terminals and elevators.

Ukraine’s leading grain exporter and his wife were killed in Russian strikes on the port city of Mykolaiv.

On Sunday heavy Russian strikes hit the Ukrainian port city of Mykolaiv, which led to the killing Oleksiy Vadatursky, the owner of one of the country’s largest grain-producing and exporting companies, city’s governor told media.

Oleksiy Vadatursky, founder/owner of agriculture company Nibulon, was killed along with his wife in their home.

With its headquarters in Mykolaiv, a strategically important city that borders the mostly Russia-occupied Kherson region, Nibulon specialises in the production and export of wheat, barley and corn, and it has its own fleet and shipyard.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described Vadatursky’s death as “a great loss for all of Ukraine”, saying the businessman had been in the process of building a modern grain market involving a network of trans-shipment terminals and elevators.

Three people were also wounded in the attacks on Mykolaiv, the city’s Mayor Oleksandr Senkevych told Ukrainian television, adding that 12 missiles had hit homes and educational facilities. He earlier described the attacks as “probably the most powerful” on the city of the entire five-month-old war.

Up to 50 grad rockets hit residential areas in the southern city of Nikopol on Sunday morning, Dnipropetrovsk Governor Valentyn Reznichenko wrote on Telegram. One person was wounded.
