euronews | Wheat export ships leave ports!, 12 Aug
Two more ships left Ukraine's Black Sea ports on Friday, including one laden with the first Ukrainian wheat to be exported under a UN-brokered deal, Turkey's defence ministry said.
•  Belize-flagged Sormovsky, departs Chornomorsk, 3,050 mt of wheat, destination: Tekirdag, TR
• Marshall Island-flagged Star Laura, departs Pivdennyi, 60,000 mt of corn, destination: Iran
• UN WFP-flagged MV Brave Commander, arrives Odesa port, ? mt of wheat, destination: Ethiopia [!]
So far most of the cargoes under the deal have carried grain for animal feed or for fuel, heading to Turkey or Western Europe. ..."[Brave Commander will be] the first delivery of humanitarian food aid under the Black Sea Grain Initiative," WFP spokesman Tomson Phiri told a news briefing earlier in Geneva. The WFP hopes there will be regular humanitarian shipments thereafter.
