One million tons of food products currently in transit through Ukrainian “corridor” – Dmytro Solomchuk

Since the middle of September, the Ukrainian “corridor” allowed about 25 ships to enter Ukrainian ports to pick up their shipments.

Dmytro Solomchuk, MP and a member of Verkhovna Rada’s Agrarian and Land Policy Committee, made this statement during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

“The Ukrainian “corridor”, which is in our 12-mile zone, works, and it works under difficult conditions, but it works because of our Defense Forces. And since September, since the middle of September, about 25 ships have arrived (to the ports – Ed.) to pick up their shipments, and they are already transporting one million tons. Unfortunately, this is still a small volume of what the agricultural sector of Ukraine needs. But this is the beginning – the beginning of the Ukrainian corridor, which works without any agreements with the country that is shelling us. Because we see that the deals that Türkiye and the UN had with russia, unfortunately, do not work. russia is willing to do anything to destroy our agricultural sector,” Dmytro Solomchuk emphasized.
