First foreign-flagged ship arrives in Ukraine since conflict began

This Saturday (6) Ukraine received the first foreign-flagged ship since the beginning of the war with Russia. The country begins to return to grain exports, under the supervision of the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul, where Russian, Turkish, Ukrainian and United Nations (UN) professionals are working.

According to information from G1, Ukraine intends to ship 3 million tons per month from its Black Sea ports. There are still around 20 million tons of grain from last year’s crops in the country. Signed in July of this year, the shipment is being made possible because of the agreement between Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and the United Nations to unlock Ukrainian ports and contain the world food crisis.
