The Razoni set sail from the Ukrainian port of Odessa on August 1 under an agreement brokered by the United Nations and Turkey between Russia and Ukraine. Eleven other ships have departed since then.

Although the Razoni was initially bound for Tripoli, Lebanon, the Ukrainian embassy in Lebanon said the buyer had refused delivery due to a five-month delay as the ship was looking for a new customer.

The ship, which had since been anchored off Turkey’s southern coast, entered Mersin port on Thursday afternoon, according to data from ship tracker Refinitiv.
