A day after #Russia re-joined a pact to permit shipments through the Black Sea, six-grain ships departed Ukrainian ports on Thursday, according to Turkey’s defense minister.
According to the official news agency citation of Defence Minister Hulusi Akar, “Six ships left Ukrainian ports after the resumption of the grain initiative.”
Moscow announced its temporary withdrawal from the grain pact on Saturday, blaming Ukraine for utilizing the safe maritime lane created by the agreement to launch a drone attack on its Black Sea fleet.
To save the accord intended to ameliorate the global food crisis brought on by the Russian war in Ukraine, Turkey and the United Nations, the organization that mediated the July arrangement, engaged in heavy diplomacy.
On Wednesday, the Russian defense ministry declared that it had obtained sufficient assurances from Kyiv that it wouldn’t conduct strikes using the maritime corridor.
