KYIV, UKRAINE — Traders do not have plans to stop grain shipments from Odesa Black Sea ports due to Russia’s attack on the region’s energy system, Reuters reported, citing Agriculture Minister Mykola Solky.

More than 1.5 million people in southern Odesa were without power after Russian drone strikes on the electricity generating system. Regional authorities said electricity would be restored in the coming days, but complete restoration may take two to three months.

Three Black Sea ports reopened in July following an almost six-month blockade caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24. The ports were reopened following a deal between Moscow and Kyiv brokered by the United Nations and Turkey.

Grain exports from Ukraine in the first eight days of December fell nearly 48% from a year earlier to 1.09 million tonnes, Reuters reported.
