First grain ship out of Ukraine cleared to sail to Lebanon - BBC News

The first grain ship to depart Ukraine since Russia invaded has arrived in Turkish waters and completed inspections, Ankara says.

Carrying 26,000 tonnes of corn, the Razoni was inspected by officials from Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN.

Russia has been blockading Ukraine’s ports since it invaded in February, intensifying global food shortages.

Under the terms of a deal brokered by Turkey and the UN last month, both sides have agreed shipments can resume.
