Grain Shipment Departs Ukraine After Export Deal

A shipment of grain departed southern Ukraine on August 1, more than a week after an export agreement was reached with Russia.

Footage released by the United Nations shows the Sierra Leone-flagged cargo ship Razoni in the port of Odesa.

According to the UN, the ship was carrying more than 26,000 tons of corn.
