For the first time since the beginning of the full-scale war with Russia, on August 8, a ship with Ukrainian grain – bulk carrier SACURA – left the port of Pivdenny. This is stated in the notification of the Ministry of Infrastructure.

“During the implementation of the “grain initiative”, this morning the first ship with Ukrainian food since February 24 left the port of Pivdenny – the bulk carrier SACURA is headed for Italy,” the ministry said in a statement.

The ship joined the caravan with the bulk carrier ARIZONA, which left the port of Chornomorsk for the Netherlands. 60,000 tons of agricultural products are on board both ships.

“Today, the largest Ukrainian port — Pivdenny — is fully involved in the implementation of the Initiative. In this way, all the ports of Great Odesa are used for the export of agricultural products,” said Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov.

He added that within two weeks, Ukraine plans to reach a transshipment volume of 3-5 vessels per day.

The first ship with unblocked Ukrainian grain left on August 1 from the Odesa port to the Lebanese port of Tripoli. 26,000 tons of Ukrainian corn were on board the dry cargo ship Razoni, which was moving through the security corridor. In the evening of August 2, Razoni arrived in Istanbul. After the inspection of the vessel by the inspection team on August 3, it continued its way to the port of Tripoli.

On August 5, the first caravan of ships with Ukrainian corn left the ports of Odesa region.
