Seven bulk carriers, which passed through the Black Sea Grain Initiative’s humanitarian maritime corridor for exporting grain and other foodstuffs from Ukraine at the weekend, are on their way to Ukrainian ports.

The Joint Coordination Center (JCC) for the Black Sea Grain Initiative announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Interfax news agency.

According to the statement, about 90 vessels are awaiting permission to enter Ukrainian ports.

"Over the weekend (5-6 November), seven inbound vessels transited the maritime humanitarian corridor under the Black Sea Grain Initiative heading towards Ukrainian ports," the statement said.

According to the statement, two ships are currently in Ukrainian ports under the initiative.

"There are currently 88 vessels waiting to move into Ukrainian ports plus 18 loaded vessels waiting for inspection in Turkish territorial waters," the JCC said.

As of November 7, the total tonnage of grain and other foodstuffs exported from the three Ukrainian ports remains 10,067,175 million tons, the JCC said.
