The deal made between the United Nations, Ukraine, and Russia — moderated by Turkey — that formed an agreement to free up grain ships stuck at Ukraine’s Black Sea ports to leave has had its first ship scheduled to arrive in Lebanon today. However, that will not happen and the ship will not arrive on schedule.
Early last Monday, the Razoni left the Ukrainian port with 26,527 tons of corn and was said to be docking in Lebanon today. However, the Ukrainian Embassy in Lebanon stated, “the ship was having a delay and not arriving today.”
The bill of lading provided with the shipment indicated an expected arrival date of Tuesday. The Lebanese transport, agriculture, and economic ministries indicated they have no word as to who was purchasing the grain.
As for future exports of Ukrainian grain, the Joint Coordination Center said it would use the ship for a trial run to fix the fine-tune procedures needed to coordinate an on-time delivery as well as to keep the travel safe.
