A ship carrying corn from Ukraine has arrived in Turkey, becoming the first ship to reach its final destination since an agreement was reached to release grain shipments stranded in Black Sea ports since the war began.

The Turkish Anadolu Agency reported that the Polarnet ship, which carries the Turkish flag, arrived in Kocaeli province in the Sea of ​​Marmara.

The Turkish Defense Ministry said that 10 cargo ships have left Ukrainian ports, so far, as the first Razzoni ship to leave Ukraine was headed for Lebanon last Monday; However, your arrival date has been postponed.

Under the deal reached last July, Ukraine pledged to guide ships through safe waters, and Russia promised not to target ships or specific infrastructure elements in ports.
