The Lebanese Minister of Public Works and Transport, Ali Hamie, said the Razoni ship, which is loaded with corn and was heading to Lebanon, has started changing its course, knowing that it is the first ship to leave the Ukrainian port of Odessa in accordance with the UN-brokered grain agreement.
Hamie wrote on his Twitter account: “The ship Razoni (sl) that set sail from the port of Odessa, loaded with corn, which was supposed – according to circulations – to be heading to the port of Tripoli in #Lebanon… and just before arriving at its initially announced destination, has changed its course! The attached data indicates that it is waiting for a new command about its new destination.”
On August 3, the first grain ship to leave a Ukrainian port during the war crossed through the Bosphorus Strait en route to Lebanon for a delivery that international powers hope would be the first of many to help alleviate a worldwide food crisis.
