Ukraine said this Monday 25 July expect to resume its cereal exports "this week", after the signing of an agreement with Moscow and despite the bombing on Saturday by the Russian army of the Grand Port of Odessa. “We expect to start to work in the coming days and we plan that a coordination center will be set up in Istanbul in the coming days.

"The preparations have reached a point that would start the ships from the port of Odessa. The ships have been loaded, they are ready to leave, but good logistics coordination is needed," he added.

The resumption of exports was also mentioned in an interview between the Turkish Defense Minister and the Ukrainian Ministers of Defense and Infrastructure, Ankara announced on Sunday.

"It is planned to start transportation as soon as possible," the Turkish ministry said in a statement.

The joint coordination center (CCC), responsible for controlling Ukrainian cereal exports via the Black Sea, was officially inaugurated in Istanbul on Wednesday in accordance with the agreements signed on July 22.

The agreement to remove the blockade - the first significant text involving the two parties since the start of the conflict - aims to alleviate a global food crisis which has seen prices skyrocket in some of the poorest countries in the world.

The CCC must register and follow the merchant ships that will participate in the convoys, ensure their follow -up via the Internet and by satellite, have the boats inspect at the time of loading in the Ukrainian ports and when they arrive in the Turkish ports.
