A Ukrainian tank fires from a wheat field – as President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned, Russia’s invasion triggered a world food crisis.
The T-64BV led an insurgency outside of Soledar in the embattled eastern Donbass region.
In nearby Kostiantynivka, a dog named Buddy was pictured near his destroyed house after a Russian attack, and in the city of Lysychansk a shelled house burned.
Meanwhile, Mr Zelenskyy accused Vladimir Putin’s war machine of blockading ports and looting grain needed in Asia and Africa.
Speaking via video link to a defense summit in Singapore, he said: “This hurts not only Ukrainians, but the whole world.”
He blamed the invasion for soaring commodity and energy prices — and said Putin is now doing the same with food.
He added: “On the battlefields of Ukraine, the future rules of this world will be decided along with the limits of what is possible.”
US prez: “We were ignored

JOE Biden said Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy “didn’t want to hear it” when he warned that Russia had troops on the border ready to invade.
The 79-year-old US President spoke to donors at a party hosted by Hollywood producer Jeffrey Katzenberg in Los Angeles.
He said: “Nothing like this has happened since World War II.
“A lot of people thought maybe I was exaggerating. But I knew we had dates.”
Mr. Biden acknowledged that a full-scale attack seemed far-fetched at the time.
He accused Putin of “trying to erase the culture of Ukraine” and said the Kremlin leader sees the capital Kyiv as “the seat of Mother Russia”.
Mr. Zelensky faced difficult questions because of his lack of preparation in the weeks leading up to the invasion
