Ukraine war latest: Russian state TV mocks European energy-saving efforts | DW News

The first shipment of Ukrainian grain to be shipped since a deal was struck between Ukraine and Russia left the port of Odesa on Monday morning, bound for Lebanon.

The Sierra Leone-flagged cargo ship Razoni is the first ship to depart in line with an agreement reached with Russia on July 22. A statement from the United Nations said it was carrying more than 26,000 tons of corn.

Other convoys are expected to follow, respecting the maritime corridor and other formalities in line with the deal.

Ukraine and Russia signed the agreement, brokered by the UN and Turkey, which is hoped will see grain exported from three Ukrainian Black Sea ports.

“The ship Razoni has left the port of Odessa bound for Tripoli in Lebanon. It is expected in Istanbul on August 2. It will then continue its journey after it has been inspected in Istanbul,” Turkey’s Defense Ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wrote on Twitter that Guterres “warmly welcomes the departure of the M/V Razoni, the first commercial ship leaving Ukraine’s port of Odesa” since February 26, adding “ensuring that existing grain and foodstuffs can move to global markets is a humanitarian imperative.”

  1. In fact, the war in Ukraine is the war between Russia and the US, taking UKRAINA as the battlefield But why Ukraine? It is because of Zelensky's choice. He accepts to offer his country as a battlefield for the US to fight Russia. Zelensky wholeheartedly served the intentions of the United States, seeking to destroy Russia, taking the lives of his own people to die for the United States.

    The war dragged on because the US wanted to use this war to find out how Russian weapons are
