First Ukraine grain ship since Russian blockade crosses the Bosphorus


The first grain ship to sail from Ukraine since Russia reimposed its Black Sea blockade in July crosses the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul. Ukrainian officials said the Palau-flagged Resilient Africa vessel was carrying 3,000 tonnes of wheat when it left Ukraine's Chornomorsk port on Tuesday. It was destined for Israel, according to marine traffic websites, representing the first successful Black Sea voyage since Russia pulled out of a UN-backed deal to export Ukrainian grain. IMAGES

  • Ship carrying Ukrainian grain passes through Bosphorus

    The Malta-flagged Rojen, headed for the UK, arrives for inspection in the Bosphorus strait of Istanbul. The cargo ship carrying 13,000 tons of grain departed from the Chornomorsk port in Odessa, Ukraine last week, and is now expected to move on to the port of Derince in northwest Turkey. The Rojen is one of the first grain ships to depart from Ukraine since UN, Ukrainian, Russian and Turkish representatives brokered an agreement in July promising the safe transportation of grain from Ukraine's ports. Millions of tons of grain remain in the ports due to the naval blockade that followed Russia's invasion of Ukraine. IMAGES
