Primeiro cargueiro a percorrer com êxito o corredor de navegação ucraniano
August 18, 2023 - O primeiro cargueiro a deixar a Ucrânia desde o fim da iniciativa de cereais do mar Negro chegou à Turquia por um corredor de navegação temporário estabelecido por Kiev, contra o bloqueio dos seus portos pela Rússia.
The Hong-Kong-flagged Joseph Schulte container ship that left the Russian-blocked Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odesa earlier this week had been in the port since Feb. 23, 2022, the day before the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Ukraine last week announced a “humanitarian corridor” in the Black Sea to release cargo ships that have been trapped in its ports after the termination of the main grain exports deal last month.
Moscow has not indicated whether it would respect the shipping corridor, and shipping and insurance sources have expressed concerns about safety, according to Reuters.
