On August 1, the first vessel with Ukrainian grain left the port of Odessa since the beginning of the war. Director General of Ukrposhta Igor Smilyansky said that the company is completing work in the occupied territories: this, according to him, is due to the growing number of threats against employees from the Russian military and fighters of the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR. Due to fears of the development of an energy crisis, the UK and the EU have eased the ban on insurance of sea transportation of Russian oil. Russian courts have begun to cancel decisions on the deportation of Ukrainian citizens “due to the lack of the actual possibility of their execution.” “Medusa” shows the main photos of the one hundred and fifty-ninth day of the war.
