Inspectors examine grain ship cargo

STORY: JCC said the ship was cleared after a three-hour inspection.

The Razoni left Odesa on the Black Sea early on Monday (August 1) carrying 26,527 tonnes of corn and anchored at the entrance of the Bosphorus Strait on Tuesday (August 2) night.

The shipment was made possible after Turkey and the United Nations brokered a grain and fertilizer export agreement between Moscow and Kyiv last month - a rare diplomatic breakthrough in a drawn-out war of attrition.

Information from the crew about the Razoni's journey will be used to fine-tune procedures to continue the safe passage of commercial vessels under the deal, it added.
