Also, a ship carrying 30,000 metric tons of grain on September 17, was said to have left for Ethiopia from Odesa Oblast via the UN-backed grain corridor.

This development was disclosed through a released statement from the Ukraine Cabinet Ministry.

This decision came after the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky said his country’s wheat will be saved for people who are dying of hunger in the world, including Somalia.

“The ship is carrying around 30,000 tons of wheat intended to help millions of people who have been affected by drought in Ethiopia and Somalia where wars are going on in some parts of the country.”
