First ship loaded with Ukrainian grain arrived in Turkey

Turkey said the first shipment of Ukrainian grain since Russia launched its invasion has arrived off Turkey’s coast.

The Sierra Leone-flagged cargo ship Razoni is on its way from the Ukrainian port of Odesa to Lebanon with more than 26,000 tons of corn on board.

But its first stop is Istanbul, where personnel from a special joint coordination center will inspect the ship to make sure it is not carrying weapons or other non-food items under the terms of an agreement reached in late July 2022 to resume Ukrainian grain exports amid a global food crisis.
