The first ships with Ukrainian grain are being loaded in the ports of the Odessa region, which have been blocked in Ukrainian waters since the beginning of the war, said Deputy Head of the President’s Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko.
“There are 17 ships in the ports with almost 600,000 tons of cargo. Of these, 16 ships with Ukrainian grain with a total tonnage of about 580,000 tons, which will soon leave for ports of destination,” he wrote on his Telegram channel on Friday.
Tymoshenko also stressed that as a result of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation on the territory of the Odessa region, 416 buildings and structures were destroyed or partially damaged.
As reported, on July 29, the ambassadors of the G7 countries in Ukraine arrived in Odessa to check the launch of the grain corridor.
On July 22, under the auspices of the UN, Ukraine and Turkey signed an agreement in Istanbul on the resumption of the safe export of Ukrainian grain across the Black Sea.
