“The Joint Coordination Centre of the Black Sea Grain Initiative authorized the departure of three vessels from Ukraine, two from the port of Chornomorsk and one from Odesa. The three cargo ships are carrying a total of 58,041 metric tonnes of corn through the [maritime] humanitarian corridor under the [Black Sea Grain] Initiative. The three ships are on their way. We tracked them and they are on their way towards the Bosphorous, where they will be inspected. The JCC has also authorized the movement of an inbound ship, the M\V Fulmar S, heading for Chornomorsk. That ship, which was anchored in an area near Istanbul, was inspected this morning and is on its way to Chernomorsk.

“Drawing from lessons learnt from the first movement under the initiative, of the Razoni, the Joint Coordination Centre has authorized this movement as a second ‘proof of concept’, testing our ability to do multi-ship operations in the corridor, of both inbound and outbound vessels. In addition, the corridor has been revised to allow for more efficient passage of ships while maintaining safety. The Coordination Centre further acknowledges the need for the commercial vessels stranded in the Ukrainian ports since February to depart to their pre-defined destinations. Their movement will free up valuable pier space for more ships to come in and carry food to global markets, in line with the aims of the Initiative. As per the procedures agreed at the Coordination Centre, all participants will coordinate with their respective military and other relevant authorities to ensure the safe passage of commercial vessels.”

STORYLINE
A UN spokesperson said the Joint Coordination Centre of the Black Sea Grain Initiative authorized the departure of three vessels from Ukraine, two from the port of Chornomorsk and one from Odesa.

Briefing reporters today (5 Aug) in New York, UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said the three cargo ships were carrying a total of 58,041 metric tonnes of corn through the [maritime] humanitarian corridor under the [Black Sea Grain] Initiative.

“The three ships are on their way,” he said. Adding, “We tracked them and they are on their way towards the Bosphorous, where they will be inspected.”

The JCC has also authorized the movement of an inbound ship, the M\V Fulmar S, heading for Chornomorsk. That ship, which was anchored in an area near Istanbul, was inspected this morning and is on its way to Chernomorsk.

The spokesperson added, “Drawing from lessons learnt from the first movement under the initiative, of the Razoni, the Joint Coordination Centre has authorized this movement as a second ‘proof of concept’, testing our ability to do multi-ship operations in the corridor, of both inbound and outbound vessels.”

In addition, the corridor has been revised to allow for more efficient passage of ships while maintaining safety, he said.

The Coordination Centre further acknowledged the need for the commercial vessels stranded in the Ukrainian ports since February to depart to their pre-defined destinations. Their movement would free up valuable pier space for more ships to come in and carry food to global markets, in line with the aims of the Initiative.

Dujarric also said, “As per the procedures agreed at the Coordination Centre, all participants will coordinate with their respective military and other relevant authorities to ensure the safe passage of commercial vessels.”
