The container ship Pros Hope entered the port of Chornomorsk on 21 April. It is the first container ship to enter the ports of Greater Odesa since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion not as part of a feeder service but directly from the original point of departure.

The ship arrived from China, the CFTS portal reports, citing data from the maritime analytics provider Marine Traffic.

The ship flies the flag of Panama.

Two feeder container ships operated by a Ukrainian company (the T Mare and T Moon ships) have been operating on a line connecting Chornomorsk with the Turkish port of Yalova and the Romanian port of Constanta since early April.

For the first time since the beginning of the full-scale war, a container ship entered one of the ports of the Odesa region on 3 April. However, it was a feeder vessel delivering small batches of containers to the Romanian port of Constanța.
