More than 1 million tonnes of Ukrainian agricultural products, including 309 thousand tonnes of wheat, were exported through the grain corridor in the past week.

This was reported by the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, according to Ukrinform.

"The statistics of the [grain] corridor operation in the past week: Ukraine sent almost 0.5 million tonnes of corn and 309 thousand tonnes of wheat. The total tonnage of agricultural products per week is 1.1 million tonnes," the report says.

The total amount of agricultural products exported by sea exceeded 10 million tonnes. As many as 430 ships left the ports of Great Odesa, including 279 ships carrying corn and wheat.

The Ministry of Agrarian Policy emphasizes that 618,000 tonnes of wheat, or 21% of the total amount, were transported to lower-income countries during the three months of the "grain initiative". A total of 579,000 tonnes of wheat were transported to Turkey, and then the flour will be sold to the countries experiencing a humanitarian crisis. In the overall percentage ratio, this is another 19.6%.
