All progress under the eye of the Joint Coordination Center (JCC) established in Istanbul under the terms of the international agreement signed in Istanbul on July 22.

The CCC had specified overnight the destination of the first two boats: Ringaskiddy in Ireland and Teesport in the United Kingdom.

The third boat will be inspected by the joint inspection team north of Istanbul before heading to Karasu, a Turkish port on the Black Sea, the ministry said. On Twitter, the Turkish Ministry of Defense also clarified that the CCC team has completed the inspection of the Fulmar which will be loaded in the Ukrainian port of Chernomorsk.

These inspections were demanded by Russia, which wants to make sure that the boats are carrying nothing other than authorized grain loads.

Russia and Ukraine have signed two separate agreements, validated by Turkey and the United Nations, which allow exports of Ukrainian cereals blocked by the war since February 24 and those of Russian agricultural products despite Western sanctions. /p>

The first shipment of corn, aboard the freighter Razoni, was made from Odessa on Monday and, after its inspection on Wednesday by the CCC at the entrance of the Bosphorus, was heading towards Tripoli, in northern Lebanon.

The Joint Coordination Center said it wanted to attempt an operation with multiple boats using a safe corridor to cross the Black Sea, in order to avoid potential mines laid by kyiv to protect its coasts.

Established in Istanbul, this center which brings together experts delegated by the four signatories, supervises the export of Ukrainian cereals and ensures the strict application of the agreement of July 22.

The governor of Mykolaiv, a region in southern Ukraine, announced on Friday a curfew in the regional capital until Monday morning in order to neutralize collaborators of the Russians.

Recently, a bounty of $100 had already been offered for any information leading to the identification of informants who reveal to the occupiers the locations of Ukrainian troops or who help them to establish coordinates of potential shelling targets.

Mykolaiv has seen heavy shelling recently, possibly the heaviest since the Russian invasion began on February 24, according to the mayor from the city. It was during one of these bombings that Oleksiï Vadatursky, 74, owner of the main Ukrainian grain logistics company, and his wife, were killed last week.
