First grain ship to depart Ukraine in five months sets sail under Russia deal – BBC News

The first ship carrying grain has left a Ukrainian port under a landmark deal with Russia, which is hoped will ease the global food crisis and lower the price of grain.

Turkish and Ukrainian officials say the ship left the southern port of Odesa early on Monday morning local time.

Russia has been blockading Ukrainian ports since February, but the two sides agreed a deal to resume shipments.
