Economy Ministry: Unblocking ports will bring Ukraine $1B in foreign currency revenues every month

The resumption of agricultural exports from Ukrainian ports will bring $1 billion in foreign currency revenue every month.

“The agreement, which unblocks opportunities for Ukrainian grain exports, guarantees us a significant inflow of foreign currency earnings. We expect at least $1 billion a month for a certain period of time,” First Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine Denys Kudin said during the nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He emphasized that the unblocked ports together with government programs to stimulate business development would ensure the economic stability of Ukraine.

On July 22, an agreement was signed on exports of grain and other foodstuffs from the Ukrainian ports following a quadripartite meeting in Istanbul between Ukraine, Turkey, the United Nations, and Russia.
