Ukraine has managed to restore the operation of the ports of Greater Odesa without the participation of third parties. This was stated during the conference "The Future of Ukrainian Exports" by Deputy Prime Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development Oleksandr Kubrakov, Bloomberg reports.
"Our position is as follows: 10 vessels have already sailed through this temporary corridor, which was established by the Ukrainian Navy, registered in all global systems, and officially recognized. 10 vessels have entered, and it seems that 2 more vessels are not coming in for grain. We understand that some incidents can happen, the war continues. If something happens to our civilian vessel, we will not talk about it, but we have something to respond with - there are military targets, there are other targets, and the enemy also understands this dangerous line," Kubrakov emphasized.
Kubrakov noted that the sea corridor can become relatively guaranteed only in two cases - after Ukraine wins the war or under the "grain initiative" scenario.
According to the official, the prerequisites for the current corridor, as in the case of the grain initiative, were the liberation of Zmiiny Island by the military and the sinking of the cruiser "Moskva".
