17 grain ships leave Ukrainian ports in two days


Turkey announced the departure of 17 ships loaded with grain from Ukrainian ports during the last two days.


This came in a brief statement issued by the Turkish Ministry of Defense on Sunday.

Last July 22, Istanbul witnessed the signing of the “Document on the Safe Shipping Initiative for Grain and Foodstuffs from Ukrainian Ports” between Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the United Nations.


The agreement included securing exports of grain stuck in the Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea (Eastern Europe) to the world to address the global food shortage crisis that threatens a humanitarian catastrophe.
