The Panamanian-flagged ship Navistar, the first of the three vessels with grain that left Ukraine yesterday, reached the Black Sea entrance of the Bosphorus in Istanbul, the Anatolian Agency reported, quoted by BTA.

The ship is carrying 33 tonnes of maize to Ireland and will be inspected by representatives of the Joint Coordination Center from Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the United Nations. 

Three more ships loaded with Ukrainian grain have sailed from Ukraine

. The arrival in Istanbul is also expected of the ship "Polarnet", sailing under the Turkish flag with 12 thousand tons of corn to the port of Karasu in Turkey, as well as the ship "Rojen", which is registered in Malta and transports 13 thousand tons of corn to Great Britain.

On Monday, the first ship left Odessa (the "Razoni" ship, carrying 27,000 tons of corn). 

Grain deliveries are made under the agreement signed in Istanbul on July 22 between Turkey, the Russian Federation, Ukraine and the United Nations, providing for the safe export of grain and food products from Ukrainian ports.

The agreement envisages the opening of three Ukrainian ports - Odesa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny - for the grain, which could not be exported due to the already ongoing six-month war between Russia and Ukraine.

A Joint Coordination Center was established in Istanbul to inspect cargo.
