Now it's Weather Causing Delays Ukrainian Ports
USAgNet - 08/12/2022

A grain-carrying ship that was scheduled to depart from Ukraine's Chornomorsk port under a U.N.-brokered deal on Thursday was unable to set sail due to bad weather conditions, Turkey's defense ministry said.

According to Reuters, the deal brokered by the United Nations and Turkey between Russia and Ukraine has allowed 12 ships to depart from Ukraine's Black Sea port since Aug. 1.

The agreement was reached last month after warnings that the halt in grain shipments from Ukrainian ports due to the conflict could lead to severe food shortages and even outbreaks of famine in parts of the world.

The Ocean Lion, the biggest ship to depart Ukraine so far, was at anchor in the Sea of Marmara, near the southern end of Istanbul's Bosphorus Strait after leaving Ukraine on Tuesday.

Two other ships, the Sacura and the Mustafa Necati, were anchored close by, while the Rahmi Yagci was anchored on the northern end of the Bosphorus.
