President Volodymyr Zelensky has arrived in the Odessa region, where preparations are underway to resume the export of Ukrainian grain.

The head of state announced this on Facebook on Friday, July 29.
"We are ready to export Ukrainian grain. We are waiting for signals from our partners about the start of transportation," Zelensky said.
He stressed that it is very important for Ukraine to remain a guarantor of world food security.
"While someone, blocking the Black Sea, takes the lives of other states, we give them the opportunity to survive," the President of Ukraine stressed.
Zelensky met with ambassadors of the G7 countries in the port of Chornomorsk. They also arrived in Odessa, from where ships with grain can depart today.

The President said that the Turkish ship is the first to be loaded in the port of Chornomorsk. According to him, the export of grain will begin with the dispatch of several ships that were loaded, but could not go on a voyage due to the start of the war.
