Five hundred eighty-five cargo ships with more than 15 million tons of agricultural products have left Ukraine through the UN-backed “grain corridor” since August, Turkish Transport and Infrastructure Minister Adil Karaismailoglu said, cited by Anadolu news agency.

Karaismailoglu added that 44% of all products exported through the “grain corridor” were delivered to Europe, 29% were sent to Asia, 15% to Turkey, and 12% to African countries.

The "grain corridor" or the Black Sea Grain Initiative is the U.N.-backed deal that Ukraine, Russia, and Turkey signed in July to unblock Ukrainian grain exports amid Russia’s full-scale invasion.

In October, Russia said it was suspending its participation in the deal over an alleged Ukrainian drone attack on Russian warships in the occupied port of Sevastopol, but later reversed the decision on Nov. 2.
