According to International news, six cargo ships are scheduled to arrive at Odesa Coast after the extension of grain agreement. The bulk carriers Negmar Cicek, ASL Ileana, Rizabey, and SSI Pride are expected to dock at the port of Chornomorsk, while BC Callisto and Deniz M are scheduled to dock at the port of Odesa.
n July 22, 2022, a grain agreement was established in Istanbul involving Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, and the UN. Two agreements were signed, one creating a corridor for exporting grain from three Ukrainian ports (Chornomorsk, Odesa, and Pivdennyy) and another removing export barriers for Russian food and fertilizers.
To remind, this March, the United Nations and the Russian Federation agreed on the extension of the Black Sea Grain Initiative by 60 days which is half the number of days agreed when it first expired in November 2022.
On March 19th, the dry cargo vessel DS Sofie Bulker departed from the port of Pivdennyy with Ukrainian products en route to the UK’s Port of Immingham. However, Russian inspectors continue to sabotage the inspection of ships entering the Bosphorus in the Sea of Marmara.
Currently, there are roughly 80 dry cargo vessels and tankers waiting at anchor to be checked.
