According to the latest information, seven vessels have already exited through the temporary humanitarian corridor from the ports of Odessa, as reported by Dmytro Pletenchuk, the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Navy.

"According to the updated data, seven vessels have already exited through the new corridor. So, it's seven out of seven successful cases. Two entered, and seven exited. Five of the vessels were here before the start of the full-scale invasion. Accordingly, this process continues. We are doing everything to ensure the safety of the area where the vessels are located in our territorial waters," said the spokesperson at a briefing at the Ukraine Media Center in Odesa.

As Pletenchuk explained, these vessels will further enter the territorial waters of Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey, all the way to the Bosphorus Strait.

"These are already the territorial waters of NATO countries. Consequently, any fire mission in this area means a fire mission on the sovereign territory of these countries. Therefore, the Russians cannot dare to attempt such actions," he emphasized.

The Ukrainian Navy underlined that the main threat in the Black Sea comes from aviation and missile armaments. At the same time, the enemy is no longer deploying naval groups in the area, as they fear their destruction.

"They keep them away, somewhere near the Crimean coasts, closer to their base in Novorossiysk. Therefore, they continue to operate missiles, such as 'Shahed' missiles, and aviation from a distance. This is the direction that we will need to address in the future. And, of course, we have hopes for new weapon systems like the F-16," Pletenchuk added.
