A grain ship from Ukraine arrives in Izmir, western Turkey


On Friday, a ship loaded with corn coming from Ukraine docked at the port of “Alsancak” in the state of Izmir, western Turkey.


It is expected to unload the ship “FULMAR S” of 11,730 tons of corn in the port following the official procedures.

It is noteworthy that the ship set off from the port of Chornomorsk in the Ukrainian region of Odessa on August 13, as part of the grain shipment agreement.

On July 22, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the United Nations signed the “Document on the Initiative for the Safe Shipping of Grain and Foodstuffs from Ukrainian Ports” during a meeting hosted by Istanbul.

The agreement included securing exports of grain stuck in the Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea (Eastern Europe) to the world.


Many countries in the world are suffering from a grain crisis as a result of the inability of cargo ships to leave Ukrainian ports due to the Russian-Ukrainian war that erupted since February 24.
