Six-grain ships set sail from Ukraine’s ports a day after Russia rejoined a deal (on Thursday) to permit exports via the Black Sea, the defence minister of Turkey said.
Following the resumption of the grain initiative, six vessels departed from ports in Ukraine. Defense Minister Hulusi Akar provided this information.
On Saturday, Moscow mentioned that it was temporarily trying to pull out of the grain deal after accusing Ukraine of strategically using a safe shipping corridor established under the agreement to launch a drone attack on the Russian Black Sea fleet.
The UN and Turkey brokered the July deal and engaged in intense diplomacy to save the agreement meant to ease the global food crisis brought about by the war in Ukraine.
Russia’s defence ministry mentioned on Wednesday that it had received enough guarantees from Kyiv that it wouldn’t use the maritime corridor to carry out any attacks.
