The inclusion of Mykolaiv port to the "grain initiative" will be possible only after the de-occupation of the Kinburn spit, local authorities informed, Інтерфакс-Україна reports.
"The delay is due to the ongoing de-occupation of Kherson oblast as well as remaining part of Mykolayiv oblast. Geographically, our vessels have to sail within a kilometer of the Kinburn spit, which is currently dangerous. When there is no artillery threat, it will be a very urgent issue. We are preparing", – they said.
