In the middle of the morning, the boat was anchored in the control zone in the Black Sea near the port of Istanbul.
A Razoni cargo loaded with grain, which on Monday she sailed from the Ukrainian port of Odsaarrived at the entrance to the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul and anchored in that city, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
In the morning of that day, the specialized server Ukrainian Shipping Magazine (USM) announced that the ship passed through the grain corridor. According to the USM, the vessel sailing under the flag of Sierra Leone entered the agreed-upon safe zone near the Romanian port around 12:00 in the morning.

To find out whether the cargo complies with the UN-brokered agreements on the import of agricultural products and whether the vessel is not carrying weapons or other non-agreed cargo.
Razoni sailed from Odsa on Monday. The checkpoint will be on the Bosphorus canal, which connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara and through the Dardanelles with the Aegean Sea.
It is expected that another ship will leave Ukraine in the following days. According to UN spokesman Stephan Dujarric, 27 loaded vessels were ordered to leave in the villages there.
Due to the Russian invasion, which began on November 24 this year, 20 and 25 million tons of grain are blocked in Ukrainian farms, according to Kyiv. Some buildings were mined by the Ukrainian side due to fears that Russian troops had landed there. The transport route is thus threatened by the operations of the Russian military.
Last month, Ukraine and Russia, through the mediation of the UN, agreed with Turkey on the conditions for the restoration of the Black Sea transport route. A joint monitoring center was created in Istanbul to ensure that this condition is met.
Ukraine is one of the world’s main exporters of grain, and some poor countries in Africa and the Middle East are on top of it.
