For the first time since February 24 a ship will arrive in Chornomorsk (Odessa region)
As part of the Initiative for Safe Transportation of Grains and Food Products, the first ship is expected to arrive at the port of Chornomorsk on August 6.
The Fulmar S vessel is the first since the full-scale invasion of Russia to enter our port under loading. The guarantors of the agreements – Turkey and the UN – confirmed the possibility of the ship entering the port of Chornomorsk. We are planning the rapid loading of the vessel and sending it to the destination port. At the same time, we are committed to ensuring ports have the ability to handle at least 100 vessels per month. As of today, 13 more ships are waiting to depart from our ports. We calculate that with the help of the Initiative’s guarantors we will soon be able to export 3 or more million tons of agricultural production from the ports Odessa, Chornomorsk, Yuzhny to the moon.Alexander Kubrakov, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine
The final destination of the ship after loading is the port Iskenderun in Turkey. Remember that on July 22, in Istanbul, on the proposals of the United Nations Ukraine, Turkey and UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres signed the Initiative on the Safe Transport of Grains and Food Products from Ukrainian Ports Odessa, Chornomorsk and Yuzhny. As part of the implementation of the agreements with the cargo of Ukrainian corn, 4 ships have already been sent: RAZONI NAVI STAR, ROJEN and POLARNET. They transport more than 80 thousand. a ton of corn. The arrival of the first RAZONI ship at its final destination – the port of Tripoli in Lebanon – is expected on August 7.
