Rescuers have put out the fire.

The State Emergency Service noted that part of the fields, forest areas, and other land plots remain unsurveyed due to the ongoing hostilities in the region.

As reported, targets of Russian strikes include Ukraine's agricultural lands, which testifies to Russia's intensions to create and deepen a global food crisis.
