The first ship transporting grain under the historic agreement agreed by Ukraine, Russia, and Turkey…
Ukraine exports more than 15 million tons of grain to Turkey.
According to the Istanbul grain export agreement, more than 15 million tons of grain have been transported by hundreds of ships over the Black Sea, a Turkish minister reported on Sunday.
Adil Karaismailoglu, the minister of transportation and infrastructure, stated in a written statement that “the overall amount of transported goods has topped 15 million 80,000 tons.”
Up to Sunday, 585 grain-loaded ships departed Ukrainian ports in the cities of Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Yuzhne, according to Karaismailoglu.
He stated that ships transported “around 13 different types of grain, including barley, wheat, soybean, sunflower meal, wheat bran, peas, sunflower seeds, processed mixed food, sugar beet, sunflower oil, canola seed, corn, and soybean oil.”
200 of the 585 vessels, according to Karaismailoglu, are Turkish-flagged, owned, or operated; 171 of the total ships deliver their cargo to Turkish ports.
“In Turkey, 15% of the whole shipment arrived. According to him, 12% of the cargo was shipped to Africa, 29% was shipped to Asia, and 44% was shipped to Europe. Spain received the greatest cargo, with about 2.9 million tons, followed by Turkey with over 2.2 million tons, and China with over 2.1 million tons, he said.
An agreement was made in Istanbul this past July by Turkey, the UN, Russia, and Ukraine to restore grain exports from three Ukrainian Black Sea ports, which had been suspended since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war in February.
To manage the shipments, a Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul was established with representatives from the three nations and the UN.
According to the historic agreement, the first grain ship left the Ukrainian port of Odesa on August 1.
Turkey, which is lauded internationally for playing a unique mediating role between Ukraine and Russia, has consistently urged Kyiv and Moscow to negotiate an end to the conflict.
