Nov 17, 2022

In Istanbul, it was agreed to extend the work of the "grain corridor" for the export of food from three Ukrainian sea ports for another 120 days.

This was reported by the Minister of infrastructure Alexander Kubrakov on his page on Facebook.

"Guarantees of the Initiative remained the United Nations and Turkey. Ukrainian agro-export today remains an effective tool to counteract the global food crisis," Kubrakov wrote.

According to him, from August 1, the beginning of the grain initiative until today Ukraine has exported more than 11 million tons of agricultural products to 38 countries.

"This is a significant volume, but not enough. The world market has no opportunity to replace Ukrainian agricultural products in the near future. However, it is possible to increase the volume of our food products for the world. We officially applied to the partners of the initiative with a proposal to extend the initiative for at least one year and include the port of Mykolaiv in it", - said the Minister.
