The Joint Coordination Center that oversees operations announced Saturday evening that five cargo ships laden with grain will sail on Sunday from the Ukrainian ports of Chernomorsk and Odessa to continue exporting grain.
In total, these boats transport more than 161,000 tons of corn and food products to Turkey, China and Italy, according to the CCC, which will continue its progress to Istanbul, where it will be inspected abroad before taking the Bosphorus.
With these new beginnings, Ukraine’s grain exports are gradually finding a steady pace.
The Consolidated Contractors Company said in a statement that it is “in the process of finalizing the regular export procedures” under the Black Sea Grain Initiative, the official name of the agreement.
“Schedules may be affected by preparations, weather conditions, or any other unforeseen circumstances,” he said.
At the same time, the center authorized the cargo ship MV Osprey to sail empty to Chernomorsk once it was inspected on Sunday off Istanbul.
The Customs Cooperation Council was established in Istanbul under the terms of the international agreement signed on July 22 between Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the United Nations.
This agreement frees up Ukrainian exports of grain, which have been halted by the war since February 24, and Russian agricultural products, despite Western sanctions.
