Ukraine’s president said Friday the first ship is being loaded with grain since Russia launched its war on Feb. 24.
According to a statement by the Presidency, Volodymyr Zelenskyy observed the loading of Ukrainian grain onto a ship at the Ukrainian port of Chornomorsk.
Saying that Ukraine remains the guarantor of global food security, he underlined that unblocking the export of Ukrainian grain will make it possible to prevent food shortages, as well as hunger and political chaos in countries that need food products.
“The first vessel, the first ship is being loaded since the beginning of the war. This is a Turkish vessel. This shows that the port has started working,” said Zelenskyy.
He went on to say that the export of grain will begin with the departure of several ships that were loaded but could not set sail due to the start of the war.
