About 300 thsd tonnes of wheat bought by Egypt blocked in Ukraine




About 300 thsd tonnes of Ukrainian wheat booked by Egypt's state grains buyer for delivery in February and March is yet to be shipped, as Russian military aggression resulted in the blockage of Ukrainian ports, Reuters informed.

Two of the cargoes that have yet to be loaded were contracted by Nibulon and a further two by Inerco, traders said. A fifth cargo contracted by Olam is stuck at Ukraine's Chornomorsk Port on a GTCS ship.

Egypt's supply minister confirmed on May 16 that authorities had granted an extension for delivery of the cargoes
