War in Ukraine: Grain freighter allowed to continue - inspection ended

The first freighter loaded with Ukrainian grain since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression has received clearance to continue to Lebanon after an inspection in Istanbul. According to the Turkish Defense Ministry, international inspectors have ended their inspection. The ship will soon pass through the Bosphorus Strait, which runs through Istanbul.

In the morning, experts from Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and the United Nations boarded the grain freighter "Razoni" anchored off Istanbul and inspected the ship.

The "Razoni" was the first ship to leave the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa on Monday as part of the agreement signed by Ukraine and Russia at the end of July. According to a statement from the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure, 17 ships that have already been loaded are currently waiting for permission to cast off.

They are to be guided through a safe corridor through mined waters in the Black Sea and checked by Ukrainian, Russian, Turkish and UN experts before they leave the Mediterranean Sea. This is intended to secure the export of millions of tons of grain that are stuck in Ukraine because of the Russian war of aggression.
