First Convoy of Ships Carrying Ukrainian Grain Leaves Odessa Under New Deal - WSJ

The first convoy of ships carrying Ukrainian grain sailed from the port of Odessa, in a sign that last month’s agreement with Russia on facilitating Ukrainian food exports is holding even as fighting raged across the country.

A convoy consisting of the bulk carriers Navi Star, Rojen and Polarnet left Odessa, Ukraine, on Friday morning carrying nearly 60,000 tons of corn, passing the city whose horizon has been largely clear of vessels since the war began on Feb. 24. In Russian-occupied southern Ukraine, north of the port city, meanwhile, shelling hit a nuclear power plant.
