Ukraine is ready to transport grain and is waiting for a signal from partners, Zelensky said. Export will start first from the port of Chornomorsk, and within two weeks from Odessa and Yuzhny
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the port of Chornomorsk in the Odessa region, from where to leave the first ships with grain since the beginning of the Russian military operation. This is reported by the office of the head of state.
“The first ship is being loaded since the beginning of the war. This is a Turkish ship. This indicates that the port is up and running»,— he said.
According to Zelensky, the export will begin with the departure of several ships that were loaded, but could not go on a voyage due to the outbreak of hostilities. Ukraine is ready for transportation and is waiting for a signal from partners— representatives of the UN and Turkey. “Our military will guarantee the security situation,” — he added.
The President of Ukraine said that grain deliveries will begin in the coming days. UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths previously admitted that this would happen as early as July 29. Deputy Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Yuriy Vaskov, in turn, said that exports from Chornomorsk would begin this week, and from the ports of Odessa and Yuzhny— within two weeks.
