The ship “Razoni”, which left the port of “Odesa” on August 1 with a cargo of Ukrainian corn, arrived at the Bosphorus. This was reported by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine.

“Millions of people around the world watched the progress of this ship today. This is our contribution to global food security, which we make despite Russian aggression. Allies are helping Ukraine to fight the enemy, Ukraine is helping the world to fight hunger,” said the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov.

Kubrakov noted that the ministry hopes to export more than 20 million tons of last year’s harvest.

In addition, more than 6 million tons of new crops have already been harvested, and the total forecast for the new crop is 50-60 million tons.

“We are grateful to our partners from the UN and Turkey for fulfilling the security parameters of the initiative. We expect that other ships with Ukrainian food will also pass successfully,” the minister added.

According to the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, the goal of Ukraine is regularity: so that when one ship leaves the port, there should be other ships as well – both those that are being loaded and those that are approaching the port.

This year’s export is needed so that our farmers and agricultural companies have sufficient resources for planting next year, the president noted.

“This is a matter of food security for our country as well – we are now ensuring next year,” says the president.

We will remind, there are 26,527 tons of corn on board “Razomi”.

Under the terms of the Safe Passage Agreement, upon arrival, the vessel will be inspected by Turkish, Ukrainian, Russian and UN officials before proceeding to the Lebanese port of Tripoli. Turkey expects about one grain ship to leave Ukrainian ports every day while the safe passage agreement is in place.

Currently, there are 68 ships in Ukrainian ports with 1.2 million tons of cargo on board.

The export of grains takes place within the framework of the agreement that Ukraine concluded on June 22 with Turkey under the auspices of the UN Secretary General. Russia signed a mirror agreement with Turkey and Guterres.
