Ukraine has exported 3.7 million cereals since last July the maritime corridor was opened by the Black Seaby virtue of the agreement reached with Russia for the transport of grain accumulated in its ports since the beginning of the Russian invasion.
According to sources from the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure, reproduced by the Ukrinform portal, until this Sunday a total of 165 cargo ships with cereals have left through the ports agreed for this purpose.
Throughout this day, the departure of another ten ships with some 169,000 tons of grain is expected.
The agreement to unblock the exports of cereals and other products was signed last July, separately, by Russia and Ukraine, under the auspices of the United Nations and Turkey, which supervise these transports.
Until the beginning of the Russian invasion of the country, last February, Ukraine exported up to six million tons of grain per month. The transport blockade threatened to precipitate a food crisis on a global scale.
Along with the grain transported by sea, Ukraine managed to transport 3 million tons through land routes to the European Union (EU) in August, mainly through Poland and Romania, destined for both the community bloc and third countries.
