First shipment of grain from Ukraine since beginning of war expected in Ireland in coming weeks
The first shipment of grain to Ireland from Ukraine, since the Russian invasion, will arrive in the coming weeks.
The consignment is part of a 58 tonne load which left the war-torn country earlier this morning.
The commercial cargo is expected to arrive on Irish shores in the next four to six weeks.
Another two shipments also left Ukraine this morning, bound for the UK and Turkey.
Ukraine hopes to export 100 ships per month in order to meet global demand for grain.
