ANDl Sierra Leonean flag ship, with 27 thousand tons of Ukrainian corn and bound for Lebanon, inaugurates the corridor agreed on July 22 between kyiv and Moscow, mediated by Ankara, under the auspices of the United Nations.
A dozen cargo ships are anchored in the area waiting to receive the go-ahead to start the crossing of the Bosphorus, a 30-kilometer-long maritime strait that connects the Black Sea with the Marmara Sea.
The inspection is provided for by the Istanbul agreement for the export of Ukrainian grain and it is only the first of dozens if not hundreds of ship departures from three Ukrainian ports, hitherto blocked by Russia.
The Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister said on Tuesday, Oleksandr Kubrakov, during the next two weeks there will be more pilot shipments from Odesa, but also in the opposite direction.
“It is important to launch the route in both directions. For the next two weeks we will have one, two or three, no more, ships in each direction and I hope that after two weeks, when everything is checked, we will have normal navigation along the corridor,” the Ukrainian official said.
