(3) First Cargo Ships Arrive at Ukrainian Port After Russia’s Exit from Grain Deal

Over the weekend, a significant development unfolded in one of Ukraine’s ports as two cargo ships made their arrival. These vessels navigated through a temporary Black Sea corridor established by Kyiv following Russia’s withdrawal from an agreement crafted during times of conflict. This agreement was designed to facilitate safe grain exports from the invaded country’s ports.

The two bulk carriers, bearing the flag of Palau and named Aroyat and Resilient Africa, successfully docked at the seaport of Chornomorsk in the southern Odesa region. This marks a significant milestone, as they are the first civilian cargo ships to reach one of the Odesa ports since Russia exited the grain deal.

Oleksandr Kubrakov, Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, expressed in an online statement that these two ships will be delivering approximately 20,000 tons of wheat to nations in Africa and Asia.
