4 grain ships leave Ukrainian ports


On Saturday, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced that 4 ships loaded with grain had left the ports of Ukraine.


The ministry said in a statement that the four ships set off today within the framework of the Istanbul agreement for the shipment of grain.

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, which threatens a humanitarian catastrophe.
