The cargo ship "Rojen", controlled by the company "Navigation Maritime Bulgaria" and sailing under Maltese flag has docked in the Italian port of Ravenna. The bulk carrier departed from the Ukrainian port of Chernomorsk with 15 thousand tons of corn on August 5. "Rojen" is the first ship loaded with grain crops from Ukraine arriving in Italy.

Before unloading begins, a mobile chemical laboratory will make analyses for the presence of radiation. Italian media note that Ukraine and Russia represent almost a third of the world's grain exports and the agreement mediated with the help of the UN and Turkey is of great importance.
