"33.8 million tonnes of cargo were exported through the Ukrainian Corridor in 7 months. This is more than was exported during the whole year of the Grain Initiative.

We opened the corridor in August 2023 – a month after russia finally withdrew from the Grain Initiative and began systematic attacks on port infrastructure and agricultural facilities.

In the first month, we had isolated ship calls, and we managed to unblock most of the ships that had been stuck since the start of the full-scale invasion. However, our team has worked hard to ensure that the number of ships ready to call at the ports of Greater Odesa and export products is increasing every month.

Today, 1,140 ships have passed through the Ukrainian corridor, exporting 33.8 million tonnes of cargo to 40 countries. Of this, 23.1 million tonnes were products of Ukrainian farmers.

Currently, 150 ships are waiting to enter the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdennyi to export almost 5 million tonnes of cargo.

We can say that we have almost reached pre-war export volumes from the ports of Greater Odesa, and we have established a much more efficient logistical route without the involvement of the aggressor state, while continuing to be a guarantor of world food security. This is another joint victory for the state, the Defence Forces and the entire maritime infrastructure industry."
