Three more cargo ships with food departed from Ukrainian ports on Thursday after receiving permission from the Joint Coordination Center (JCC), Interfax reported.

"As of October 20, the total tonnage of exported grain and other agricultural products from three Ukrainian ports is 8,087,665 tons. A total of 738 ships are allowed to move - 375 for arrival at Ukrainian ports and 363 for departure," - said the message of the SCC.

It is noted that three ships with 141,500 tons of grain and other agricultural products left Ukraine's ports on Thursday.

7.7 million tons of grain were transported by ships from Ukrainian ports

The bulk carrier Aris T will deliver 52,733 tons of corn and 23,267 tons of sunflower meal to Spain.

The ship Xin Shun will transport 60,000 tons of rapeseed to EU countries.

The bulk carrier Atlantis Almeria is heading to Turkey with 5.5 thousand tons of sunflower oil.

"Grain that has arrived at its destination can be processed and then transported to other countries," SKC explained.

We remind you that on July 22 in Istanbul with the participation of the UN, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine, a document was signed to create a corridor for the export of grain from three Ukrainian ports - Chernomorsk, Odesa and Yuzhny.

Over 5 million tons of grain from Ukraine were exported through Romania - about 60% of what was exported from this country.

This was stated on Thursday by Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

He pointed out that Romania will continue to develop its logistics to contribute significantly to reducing a possible food crisis.

Ukraine's grain exports in the first 17 days of October were only 2.4% lower than in the same period last year, the Ukrainian Ministry of Agriculture reported.

These volumes have been achieved despite ongoing Russian aggression and the fact that many of the country's Black Sea ports remain closed due to hostilities.

Ukraine's grain exports collapsed after Russia launched the war and Ukraine's Black Sea ports were blocked, sending world food prices soaring and fears that food supplies could be disrupted in Africa and the Middle East.
