Three new grain shipments left Ukraine

The three vessels, loaded with corn, will serve Ireland, England and Turkey, the ministry said in a statement.

At the same time, a cargo ship, the Fulmar, under the flag of Barbados, is heading for the port of Chernomorsk to load grain there, the ministry said.

All are progressing under the watchful eye of the Joint Coordination Center (JCC) established in Istanbul under the terms of the international agreement signed in Istanbul on July 22.

Russia and Ukraine have signed two separate agreements, validated by Turkey and the United Nations, which allow exports of Ukrainian cereals blocked by the war since February 24 and those of Russian agricultural products despite Western sanctions.

The Navistar, flying the Panamanian flag, left Odessa for Ireland with 33,000 tonnes of maize; the Rojen, under the Maltese flag, is heading for England from Chernomorsk with 13,000 tons.

The CCC had specified in the night the destination of the boats, Ringaskiddy in Ireland and Teesport in the United Kingdom.

Finally, the Turkish freighter Polarnet, which was waiting at the quay in Chernomorsk, is heading for Karasu, a Turkish port on the Black Sea, with 12,000 tonnes of corn.

This last boat will be "inspected by the joint inspection team north of Istanbul" before joining Karasu, the ministry said.

On Twitter, the Turkish Ministry of Defense also clarified that "the CCC team has completed the inspection of the Fulmar which will be loaded in the Ukrainian port of Chernomorsk".

These inspections have been demanded by Russia, which wants to ensure that the boats are carrying nothing other than authorized grain loads.

The first shipment of corn, aboard the freighter Razoni, departed from Odessa on Monday and, after its inspection on Wednesday by the CCC at the entrance to Bosphorus, was heading for Tripoli in northern Lebanon.

The Joint Coordination Center said it wanted to attempt "an operation with multiple boats" using a secure corridor to cross the Black Sea, in order to avoid potential mines laid by kyiv to protect its coasts.

Established in Istanbul, this centre, which brings together experts delegated by the four signatories, supervises the export of Ukrainian cereals and ensures the strict application of the July 22 agreement.
