Ukraine: Alternative Black Sea export corridor is working despite attack

Ukraine‘s different Black Sea export hall is working regardless of a current Russian assault on a civilian vessel, Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov stated on Thursday.

Ukrainian officers stated on Wednesday a Russian missile broken a Liberia-flagged civilian ship getting into a Black Sea port within the Odesa area, killing one particular person and injuring 4 others. The vessel was supposed to move iron ore to China.

“#Ukrainian_Corridor: vessel traffic continues both to and from the ports of Big Odesa (region),” Kubrakov stated on the X social media platform.

He stated that six vessels with 231,000 tons of agricultural merchandise on board had left ports inside the Odesa area and have been heading in the direction of the Bosphorus Strait in Türkiye.

“Five vessels are waiting to enter ports for loading. Traffic along the #Ukrainian_Corridor continued despite Russia’s systematic attacks on port infrastructure,” Kubrakov added.

After pulling out of a U.N.-brokered deal that assured protected shipments of Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea, Russia has been repeatedly attacking Ukrainian port infrastructure.

In August, Ukraine launched a “humanitarian corridor” for ships certain for African and Asian markets to attempt to circumvent a de facto Russian blockade within the Black Sea of Kyiv’s seaborne exports, imposed after Russian forces invaded Ukraine in 2022.

Later, a senior agricultural official stated the route – which runs alongside Ukraine’s southwest Black Sea coast, into Romanian territorial waters and onwards to Türkiye – would even be used for grain shipments.

Kubrakov stated 91 vessels had exported 3.3 million metric tons of agricultural and metallic merchandise because the hall began working in August.

The UCAB agricultural business affiliation stated this month that Ukrainian grain agricultural exports rose by 15% to 4.8 million metric tons in October due to the brand new hall.
