Ukraine Exported 50 Million Tons of Cargo Through the Sea Corridor

Since August 2023, the sea corridor established by the Naval Forces has facilitated the export of 50 million tons of cargo, according to Yuriy Vaskov, former Deputy Minister of Community Development, Territories, and Infrastructure (Ministry of Reconstruction)

Key Points:

  • Export Volume: Exports through the sea corridor, often referred to as the "grain corridor," have reached 50 million tons.
  • Timeline: The Ministry of Reconstruction reported that from August to May 10, 45 million tons of goods were exported to 44 countries through the "grain corridor."
  • Performance Comparison: Yuriy Lytvyn, Head of the Administration of Sea Ports of Ukraine (MASU), noted that the performance of the Ukrainian "grain corridor" has surpassed the results of the Black Sea Grain Initiative by almost one and a half times. Specifically, the rate of transportation of grain cargoes over eight months is already 10% higher than the results achieved by the "grain initiative" over the span of a year.

This significant achievement highlights the effectiveness of Ukraine's sea corridor in maintaining robust export activities despite the ongoing challenges posed by the conflict. The continued success of this corridor is vital for Ukraine's economy and its role in global food supply chains.
