The reports about the cancellation or unpredictable suspension of the temporary corridor for civilian vessels sailing to and from the ports of Greater Odesa are not true, the Ministry of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine has said.

"All existing routes established by the Ukrainian Navy are valid and used by civilian vessels. Given that the corridor was implemented in the extremely difficult conditions of Russia's military aggression, its operation takes into account the military situation and weather conditions," the ministry said.

According to the Ministry of Infrastructure, there are 23 vessels at the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdennyy.

"A total of 51 vessels have used the entry corridor. Thirty-three vessels have exported more than 1.3 million tonnes of Ukrainian agricultural products and other cargoes," it noted.

Earlier today, the Barva Invest consulting company said that Ukraine suspended the use of the new Black Sea grain corridor due to the threat from Russian aviation.
