For the first time since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, a vessel is going to Ukraine for export grain.

About this in Telegram said the speaker of the head of the Odessa Regional Military Administration Sergei Bratchuk.

“The Turkish bulk carrier OSPREYS under the flag of Liberia is heading from the Dardanelles Strait to the port of Chornomorsk (Odessa region – UNIAN). The ship left the Turkish port of Iskenderun on the last day of July and should arrive in Ukraine on August 5. This will be the first ship from those that have not been blocked in our ports since February 24, which goes for Ukrainian export grain,” Bratchuk said.

As UNIAN reported, on July 22 in Istanbul an agreement was signed on the unblocking of Ukrainian ports “Odessa”, “Chernomorsk” and “Yuzhny” for the export of grain and other agricultural products. Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu signed separate identical agreements with the UN and Turkey.

On July 29, Kubrakov announced that 10 ships with Ukrainian grain in the ports of Odessa and Chornomorsk were already ready for shipment.

August 1 in the morning from Odessa came out the first since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, a ship with Ukrainian food. Dry cargo ship Razoni under the flag of Sierra Leone is heading to the port of Tripoli in Lebanon with 26,000 tons of Ukrainian corn. Today, August 3, this ship has already left the Black Sea and passed through the Bosporus Strait further.

United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that the passage of a ship with Ukrainian bread through the Bosphorus is only the first step towards establishing food security in the world.
