Export of Ukrainian Grain to African Countries

As of January 2023, Ukraine exported 194.400 tons of agricultural products

According to the Ministry of agrarian policy and food of Ukraine, in less than 2 months, Ukraine sent 194.400 tons of agricultural goods to the countries of the African continent, 46.500 tons of which are wheat. Export takes place within the framework of the state program Grain from Ukraine.

A few days ago, the vessel AMIRA HANA, loaded with 30.000 tons of grain, left the Ukrainian port of Chornomorsk in the direction of the port of Djibouti. Then the vessel will head to Ethiopia. In total, 238.300 tons of wheat were sent to this country as part of Grain from Ukraine.

Since the start of the grain corridor, 673 vessels with agricultural products have left Ukraine. The highest export rate was at that time, and in recent months there has been a tendency on the part of Russia to deliberately obstruct the functioning of the corridor in order to manipulate the famine. Over the last week, Ukraine sent 871.000 tons of grain (of which 387.000 corn and 287.000 wheat).
