Following the Razoni dry cargo ship loaded with corn, which was the first to leave Ukraine along the “grain corridor”, 20 more ships are now ready to leave Odesa, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Lebanon, Ihor Ostash, announced on Facebook.

“We are now in Tripoli, but the arrival of the first ship with corn from Odesa is delayed,” he said. “We are waiting for the conclusion of the negotiation process. 20 more ships are ready to depart Odesa after this vessel.”

The ambassador added that Ukraine is making every effort to help save the countries of the Middle East and Africa from the food crisis.

As reported, on August 1, for the first time since Russia’s full-scale invasion began on February 24, a ship carrying more than 26,000 tonnes of Ukrainian corn left the Odesa port. The Razoni ship under the flag of Sierra Leone is heading to the port of Tripoli in Lebanon. The ship was scheduled to arrive on August 7.
