Two more ships leave Ukrainian port with grain
Both ships left Ukraine’s Black Sea ports on Monday
Russo-Ukraine war has created famine-like crisis in different parts of the world
Kyiv Turkey’s defense ministry said two more ships left Ukraine’s Black Sea ports on Monday after the first consignment of grain left for Lebanon from the port of Odessa. Following last week’s deal with Russia to open up Ukraine’s grain exports, the first grain-laden ship has successfully sailed and will now accelerate on a daily basis. Due to the Russo-Ukraine war, serious famine-like situations started to arise in different parts of the world. The United Nations and Turkey last month expressed concern over a ban on grain shipments to Ukraine and reached an agreement to address it.
Turkey’s defense ministry said on Monday that the ship Sakura, which departed from Yuzhny, was carrying about 11,000 tonnes of soybeans to Italy, while the ship Arizona, which sailed from Chornomorsk, would deliver 48,458 tonnes of corn to Iskenderan in southern Turkey. Turkey’s defense ministry said four more ships had left Ukraine on Sunday and could reach Istanbul on Monday evening. Which will be monitored on Tuesday. The resumption of grain exports is being monitored by a Joint Coordination Center (JCC) in Istanbul. Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish and UN personnel are working there.
Ukraine’s first grain consignment was inspected successful, 3 consignments will be sent daily
Another Ukrainian ship, the Osprey S, was spotted in Istanbul on Sunday, according to Refinitiv Ship Tracker data. Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said Ukraine would soon start exporting grain from its Black Sea port of Pivdenyny.
