Over 7 million tons of cargo have been exported since the beginning of August from Ukrainian ports Pivdennyi, Chornomorsk, and Odesa through the maritime corridor established by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. A total of 200 vessels have exited the ports, with 226 vessels entering, according to Ukraine's First Deputy Prime Minister, Oleksandr Kubrakov.


Of the dispatched cargo, nearly 5 million tons constitute the products of Ukrainian agrarians. "Today, in the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Pivdennyi, 31 vessels are under loading, and another 30 vessels are following the corridor in both directions," specified the Deputy Prime Minister.


On the eve, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that the Assembly of the International Maritime Organization adopted a resolution in support of Ukraine's efforts in the Black Sea to restore navigation and operate a new "grain corridor."


"The Assembly of the International Maritime Organization has adopted a resolution to support our efforts in the Black Sea. Ukraine's success in restoring navigation and the operation of a new grain corridor," noted Zelensky.


Recall that on July 17, Russia unilaterally terminated the international grain agreement with Turkey and the UN and declared that it would perceive all ships as military targets. In response, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that Ukraine is ready to independently support the grain corridor, even in the face of Russian threats.


On August 10, the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces announced the creation of a temporary humanitarian corridor for merchant vessels heading to and from Ukrainian ports. 


On August 12, Ukraine opened the registration of merchant vessels and their owners willing to pass through temporary routes in the Black Sea.


On August 16, the first ship left the Ukrainian port after Russia announced the suspension of the grain agreement and arrived in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 18.


In September, Ukraine exported 3.6 million tons of its agricultural products to European and African countries. Since the inception of the Ukrainian grain corridor, nearly 700 thousand tons of agricultural products have been successfully exported. 


To ensure uninterrupted export, Ukraine has developed a new mechanism for the state licensing of certain types of agricultural products.


Meanwhile, the Russian army continues regular missile attacks on Ukraine's port infrastructure.
