Quote: “In September we managed to export about 50,000 tonnes by this route. It is only developing and, we hope, it will develop further and will make it possible to export much more already in the next few weeks.”

Vysotskyi stated that Ukraine still does not consider any options of cooperation with Russia concerning the full-fledged agricultural export by sea and is working on this issue with the UN, Türkiye and other Western partners instead.

Background:

  • All three Black Sea ports of Ukraine resumed the reception of vessels for export despite Russia’s threats to launch attacks on the ships heading to the Ukrainian ports.

  • The first 10 ships have used the corridor, which Ukraine started building after Russia’s refusal to resume the grain deal and despite its threats to sink the vessels heading to the Ukrainian ports.
