The cargo turnover of the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Pivdennyi in February 2024 amounted to 8 million tons, of which 5.2 million tons were Ukrainian agricultural products and the rest were mainly products of the mining and metals sector.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Development of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.

"These are record export figures not only for the Ukrainian corridor but also for the period since the full-scale invasion. We are gradually approaching the pre-war exports through these ports," the ministry said in the statement.

Currently, over 90% of all agricultural exports go through the ports of Greater Odesa and the Danube ports.

"Ukraine remains one of the key guarantors of food security, especially when it comes to grain exports to Africa and Asia," the ministry said.

Almost 28 million tons of cargo have been exported to 42 countries since the launch of the Ukrainian maritime corridor. These are not only agricultural products, but also products of the mining and metals sector, which play an important role in generating foreign-currency revenues for the state treasury.
