    Zelensky visits the city of Mykolaiv for the first time since the beginning of the war

    Moscow has Mykolaiv in its sights because it is on the route to Odessa, Ukraine’s largest port.

    The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelensky, made this Saturday (06.18.2022) his first visit to the city of Mikolaiv since the beginning of the Russian invasion on February 24.

    The southern city is an urban port and industrial hub where some half a million people lived before the war and remains under Ukrainian control even though it is close to Russian-occupied Kherson.

    Moscow has Mykolaiv in its sights because it is on the route to Odessa, Ukraine’s largest port.

    During his visit, Zelensky spoke with local authorities about “the state of the economy, the restoration of water supply, the situation in agriculture,” issues related to this year’s harvest, the Ukrinform news portal reported.

    The president also took the opportunity to inspect the remains of the Mikolaiv state administration building, destroyed as a result of a missile attack by Russian troops and which, according to Ukraine, left at least 37 dead.
