The bulker Razoni today became the first vessel to carry grain from a blocked Ukrainian port as part of a United Nations-brokered deal.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defense, which is part of the four-way operation between Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN, announced early on Monday on Twitter that there was an agreement for the vessel to leave Odesa port at 08.30 local time.

Vessel trackers showed the 29,300-dwt Razoni (built 1996) underway off Odesa at 08.15
