On 30 March, six ships with Ukrainian food left the ports of Greater Odesa, the Ministry of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure has said.
One of the ships is the bulk carrier Serenity Ibtihaj with 27,000 tonnes of wheat for Egypt.
According to the ministry, this African country has already received 1m tonnes of Ukrainian agricultural products since the launch of the Grain Initiative. The grain was delivered by 44 vessels.
"As Egypt is experiencing a financial crisis, the country depends on systematic grain supplies and stable prices. The Grain Initiative, which is working on a regular basis, can meet these needs. At the last tender, Egypt purchased another batch of Ukrainian wheat of 120,000 tonnes. It will be shipped next month," the Ministry of Infrastructure said.
The ministry pointed out that the international community "could have received more Ukrainian agricultural products if the Russians had not deliberately slowed down inspections of ships in the Bosphorus".
"As of the evening of 30 March, 89 vessels are awaiting inspection in Turkish territorial waters," the ministry added.
Since 1 August, 857 vessels have exported 26.2m tonnes of Ukrainian food to Asia, Europe and Africa from the ports of Greater Odesa.
