Following a landmark deal between Ukraine and Russia to resume shipment of grain, the first ship left the Odesa port with destination to Turkey. It is hoped the agreement will ease the global food crisis and lower the price of grain. Ukraine’s Infrastructure Minister Alexander Kubrakov wrote on Facebook, “Unlocking ports will provide at least $1 billion in foreign exchange revenue to the economy and an opportunity for the agricultural sector to plan for next year.”
