Four grain ships loaded at Ukrainian sea ports over past week – UCAB

Between May 22, 2023 and May 28, 2023, four vessels were loaded at the Odesa region’s sea ports as part of the Black Sea Grain Initiative.

The relevant statement was made by the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club (UCAB), an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to the UCAB, the ‘grain corridor’ does work but not in full force, and the Russian side continues to slow down its performance.

During the 43rd week of the grain corridor’s operation, a total of 210.5 thousand tonnes of agricultural products were exported via the Odesa region’s sea ports, which is 78% higher compared to the previous week. The UCAB noted a certain upward trend, but these are minimum shipments compared to the grain corridor’s potential.

The UCAB believes that, in view of such indicators, it will be extremely difficult to export the remaining stocks before the new harvesting season begins.

Between May 22, 2023 and May 28, 2023, most shipments consisted of corn (91% of the total exports) and barley (9%). Ukrainian agricultural products were sent to Asia (China), Europe (Spain) and Africa (Egypt).

In general, Ukraine has exported 30.5 million tonnes of agricultural products since the grain corridor opened on August 1, 2022.
