Agreement on the Export of Grain From Ukraine Has Been Signed

Ukraine-UN-Turkey signed an agreement that will stop the growing food crisis created by Russia

On July 22, a momentous event occurred in Istanbul: an agreement was signed on exporting Ukrainian grain via the Black sea. Ukraine, the UN and Turkey attended the agreement. Ukraine did not sign an agreement with Russia — Russia signed a mirror agreement.

"The agreement signed today by Ukraine, the Russian Federation & Türkiye under UN auspices opens a path for commercial food exports from Ukraine in the Black Sea. It will help avoid a food shortage catastrophe for millions worldwide. It is a beacon of hope, possibility & relief," António Guterres.

Basic moments:

  • Control over the ports of the ports Odesa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny belongs to Ukraine;
  • Instead of demining ports, special fairways will be used to exit ships;
  • Full export from Ukrainian ports will begin in a few weeks;
  • The Istanbul coordination centre consisting of Ukraine, Turkey and Russia will coordinate the exit of ships from Ukrainian ports.
