Grain exports from Ukraine, which were disrupted by Russian President Vladimir Putin's withdrawal from the Black Sea Grain Corridor Agreement, have resumed. Two cargo ships have crossed the Bosphorus and arrived at the Ukrainian port of Chornomorsk to use the new corridor, which was determined due to Russia's objections, according to local sources.
It was stated that the dry cargo ships that will use the territorial waters of Ukraine-Romania-Bulgaria will load 20 thousand tonnes of wheat and the grain will be taken to Egypt and Israel. Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said that the crew of the Palau-banded ships Resilient Africa and Aroyat consisted of Ukrainians, Turks, Azerbaijanis, and Egyptians.
It was reported that the United Nations (UN) has no involvement in the new route that will enable Ukrainian grain to be offered to world markets. Speaking to international news agencies, the UN official stated that they have absolutely no involvement in the process.
"We welcome all efforts towards the resumption of normal trade, especially in vital foodstuffs that help supply and stabilize global food markets," the official said.
