WARSAW, POLAND — Fifty percent more Ukrainian grain is moving via Poland monthly compared to the middle of the year, Reuters reported, citing Poland’s infrastructure minister.

About 450,000 tonnes per month have been transported via Poland. Compared to October of last year, the increase in grain transport is over 16 times, the minister said.

Exports from Ukraine came to a halt in February after Russia’s invasion and blockade. Three Ukrainian Black Sea ports were unblocked at the end of July under a deal brokered by the United Nations and Turkey.

The deal was extended for 120 days in the middle of November.
