Representatives of the UN and Türkiye are negotiating with the russian delegation and continue to look for solutions for the full implementation of the Black Sea Grain Initiative.
According to the proposal of the Joint Coordination Center (JCC), representatives of the UN and Türkiye envisage the work of 10 inspection groups to check 40 ships. Such a proposal was accepted by the representatives of Ukraine. Representatives of the russian federation were informed.
Thus, 12 ships with 354.5 thousand tons of agricultural products left the Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Pivdennyi sea ports today for the needs of Africa, Asia, and Europe. Among them is the bulk carrier IKARIA ANGEL with Ukrainian wheat intended for the residents of Ethiopia, which are on the verge of famine. This is the seventh vessel chartered under the UN World Food Program.
At the same time, the passage to Ukrainian ports for loading is allowed for 4 vessels that passed the JCC inspection the day before with the participation of all parties, including representatives of russia.
