Inspectors in Turkey inspect a ship carrying Ukrainian grain

The Turkish Defense Ministry said a team of inspectors began examining the empty cargo ship on Friday before transporting grain from the Ukrainian port of Chornomorsk under a deal to resume Ukrainian grain exports.

The ministry posted images on Twitter showing the inspection team boarding a boat to board the Barbados-flagged cargo ship Fulmar S, which was docked in the Black Sea north of the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul.

Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish and United Nations officials working at a joint coordination center in Istanbul inspect ships carrying Ukrainian grain.

Three ships carrying a total of 58,041 tons of corn were allowed to leave Ukrainian ports on Friday after a Russian attack forced Kiev’s forces to withdraw from the region in the east.

The first ship carrying Ukrainian grain allowed to leave ports since the start of the war left Odessa on Monday for Lebanon under a deal brokered by Turkey and the United Nations.
