Zelenskiy visits ship preparing for grain export

STORY: Russia and Ukraine are major global wheat suppliers, and the agreement they signed in Istanbul last week is intended to ease an international food crisis worsened by Russia's invasion.

The agreement aims to allow safe passage for grain shipments in and out of the Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Pivdennyi ports, blockaded by Russia since the start of the conflict. Moscow blames Ukraine for stalling shipments by mining the port waters.

The president was joined by ambassadors from G7 countries on the docks, including Bridget Brink of the United States and Anka Feldhusen of Germany.
