Ukraine News  Live: Russian State TV Presenter Probed Over Call For Drowning Of Children

A Russian TV presenter has apologized for calling for the drowning of Ukrainian children, as Moscow's Investigative Committee said it was investigating his remarks.

Speaking on state broadcaster RT last week, host Anton Krasovsky said Ukrainian children who saw Russians occupied under the Soviet Union should have been "thrown straight into a fast-flowing river" and drowned.

Ukraine said on Sunday that RT incites genocide and should be banned worldwide.

RT editor Margarita Simonyan said she had suspended Krasovsky for his "disgusting" comments, adding that no one at RT shared his views.

It comes as a senior Russian official said the war in Ukraine was heading for an 'uncontrolled escalation' amid unfounded allegations that Ukraine was planning to set off a 'dirty bomb'.

Without evidence, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu suggested that Kyiv planned to use conventional explosives mixed with radioactive materials to escalate the conflict, a charge Kyiv dismissed as "ridiculous" and "dangerous".

Seven ships carrying grain bound for Asia and Europe left Ukrainian ports on Sunday, but Kyiv has accused Russia of obstructing full implementation of the Black Sea grain deal.

Russia is blocking full implementation of the Grains Initiative. As a result, these (Ukrainian) ports are only 25-30% used in recent days," Ukraine's infrastructure ministry said in a statement.

A ship chartered by the United Nations World Food Program left Chornomorsk for Yemen with 40,000 tonnes of wheat.

“It is very important that today the sixth food ship chartered under the United Nations World Food Program leaves our port,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his evening video address.

This ship is loaded with wheat bound for Yemen. Ethiopia, Yemen and Afghanistan: these three countries have already received food for our exports and the United Nations Food Programme. »
