Latest on the war in Ukraine
MADRID, Dec. 4 (.) –
The Turkish Ministry of Defense has informed this Sunday that the agreement for the export of cereals has already allowed the export of more than 13 million tons from Ukrainian ports.
A total of 524 ships have been able to transit through the Black Sea after the agreement mediated by Turkey. “Shipments of grain from Ukrainian ports continue. The amount of grain transported exceeds thirteen million tons,” the Turkish Ministry of Defense highlighted through a message posted on Twitter.
The agreement reached on July 22 by Russia and Ukraine with the mediation of the UN and Turkey has allowed the resumption of the transit of grains from three Ukrainian ports after months of blockade in the middle of the war.
However, it is not a bilateral agreement, but an agreement between Ukraine on the one hand and Turkey and the UN on the other and a second mirror agreement signed between Russia and Turkey and the UN.
The text enables the export of cereals and fertilizers from Odessa, Chornomorsk and Yuzhne in ships that will be inspected by Turkey and then transit through the authorized corridors. Russia in return can export food, fertilizer and raw materials under an agreement signed with the UN.
