Ukraine says the second group of ships with agricultural cargo has left its ports in the Black Sea. The four vessels are carrying nearly 170,000 tons of grain. It's part of the deal between Ukraine and Russia mediated by Turkey and the UN that was signed last month. The four sides set up a joint center in Istanbul to oversee the shipments of food products to the world's vulnerable regions.
Meanwhile, the first ship that left Ukrainian ports last Monday under the grain exports deal has still not arrived in Lebanon. The Ukrainian embassy there says that the Razoni has been delayed. The ship was inspected by the joint center team in Istanbul last week. It was set to arrive in the Lebanese port of Tripoli on Sunday, carrying more than 26,000 tons of grain.
