Ukraine’s agricultural exports via sea ports reach 4.1M tonnes

As part of the ‘grain initiative’, a total of 177 vessels loaded with 4.1 million tonnes of agricultural products have already left the Ukrainian sea ports.

The relevant statement was made by the Ukrainian Infrastructure Ministry on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“A total of 4.1 million tonnes of agricultural products have been exported since the first vessel loaded with Ukrainian-produced crops left. In general, 177 vessels left the Ukrainian ports, carrying agricultural products towards Asian, European and African countries,” the report states.

On September 20, 2022, eight more vessels loaded with 195.7 thousand tonnes of agricultural products sailed from Odesa Port and Chornomorsk Port via the so-called ‘grain corridor’.

In addition, the bulk carrier BC VANESSA has moored to Odesa Port’s berth today. It is the fourth vessel chartered by the UN World Food Programme to be loaded with 30,000 tonnes of wheat for Afghanistan.

A reminder that, on July 22, 2022, Ukraine, Turkey, Russia and the United Nations signed an agreement in Istanbul, unblocking grain and food exports from three Ukrainian ports. The first vessel left the Odesa region’s ports on August 1, 2022.
