According to maritime traffic monitoring sites, the first ship carrying Ukrainian grain arrived at the Turkish port of Mersin on Wednesday and found a new buyer, a news site reported.
The Sierra Leonean-flagged cargo ship Razoni departed from the port of Odessa on the Black Sea on August 1 with 26,000 tonnes of corn and was due to arrive at the port of Tripoli in Lebanon on Sunday.

According to maritime traffic tracking sites, the Razoni docked in the Turkish Mediterranean port of Mersin on Wednesday evening. A new buyer has been found in Turkey for maize transported by Razoni, Middle East Eye news site reported. “The cargo will be sold and unloaded in Mersin,” said Ahmed Al-Fars of Ashram, a shipping agency.

Frederic Kenny, the senior UN official overseeing the deal, said on Wednesday that wheat shipments would begin next week after corn-laden ships stuck in Ukrainian ports following Russia’s invasion could leave. “We are seeing a steady increase in the number of ships arriving and departing. This is a good start,” he added.
