Ship with 27,000 tonnes of wheat leaves Ukraine for Ethiopia

The NORD VIND, a ship carrying Ukrainian wheat for Ethiopia, is moving along a "grain corridor" as part of the Grain from Ukraine initiative.

The press service of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine said this in a post on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

"GrainFromUkraine: the NORD VIND ship with 27,000 tonnes of wheat from Ukraine for Ethiopia is moving along a 'grain corridor'," the post reads.

The first bulk carrier with Ukrainian wheat departed from the port of Odesa with the support of the German government and the UN World Food Program.

The vessel is moving along the "grain corridor" as part of a caravan of eight ships delivering 269,000 tonnes of Ukrainian agricultural products to countries in Africa, Asia and Europe. The BOZBURUN M, a bulk carrier chartered by the United Nations, is transporting 40,000 tonnes of Ukrainian wheat for Ethiopia.

The Grain from Ukraine initiative envisages sending up to ten ships with Ukrainian grain every month. The program envisages supplies of grain to at least five million people by the end of spring 2023.

Grain from Ukraine, a humanitarian program that will be implemented in partnership with the World Food Program, was launched on November 15.
