Since Russian invasion, Ukraine dispatches biggest grain convoy

After 13 ships departed from its ports on Sunday carrying 282,500 tonnes of agricultural products to foreign markets, Ukraine claimed to have sent its largest convoy of grain ships under a U.N.-brokered pact to yet.

At the Black Sea ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Pivdennyi, the cargo headed for eight nations was loaded. Up until a settlement that was mediated by the United Nations and Turkey on July 22, the ports had been totally blocked off by Russia’s invasion.

According to the agreement, 86 ships have since departed from Ukrainian ports delivering 2 million tonnes of agricultural products to 19 nations, according to a statement on Facebook from the Ukrainian Infrastructure Ministry.

The agreement was reached after Russia’s invasion and blockade of Ukraine’s ports cut off Ukraine’s access to its primary export route via the Black Sea, driving up the price of food globally and raising concerns about shortages in Africa and the Middle East.

Oleh Ustenko, the economic adviser to the president, stated in July that Ukraine hoped to export 60 million tonnes of grain in eight to nine months, but he issued a warning that delays in ports may cause exports to take up to 24 months.
