Five more vessels have set sail for Ukraine’s seaports via a new corridor launched to resume agricultural exports, an alternative measure to the Black Sea grain deal blocked by Russia, a Ukrainian official stated on Sunday.
He added that the Bulk carriers named DANNY BOY, OLGA, IDA, FORZA DORIA, and NEW LEGACY will export approximately 120,000 metric tons of Ukraine’s grain to Europe and Africa.
Kubrakov added that three bulk carriers – Eneida, Azara, and Ying Hao 01 – set sail from Ukraine’s ports on Sunday using a temporary corridor established by Ukraine’s Navy and loaded with 127,000 tons of iron ore and agricultural products.
The three cargo vessels are the most recent ones to sail since Kyiv has a temporary humanitarian corridor in place, with Russia quitting a deal permitting safe passage for Ukraine-based exports.
After it reportedly invaded Ukraine in 2022, Moscow closed off the Black Sea ports of one of the major grain suppliers in the world, in what Kyiv and its Western backers consider an attempt to utilize global food supplies as a form of blackmail.
Moscow declared that the ports could be well used to bring weapons.
The ports reopened in 2022 (July) per a deal that was brokered by Turkey and the UN that permitted Russia to examine vessels for arms.
Moscow quit the agreement a year later and then reimposed a blockade, stating that its demands for better terms for fertilizer and food exports were ignored.
