Three ships, including one chartered by the United Nations World Food Program, departed from Ukrainian ports on Sunday, the Joint Coordination Center (JCC) said.

"The Joint Coordination Centre (JCC) reports that three vessels left Ukrainian ports today [December 4] carrying a total of 115,400 tonnes of grain and other food products under the Black Sea Grain Initiative," the JCC said.

MV Callisto, chartered by the UN World Food Program, is bound to Somalia with 30,000 tonnes on wheat onboard. The wheat will be delivered to Ethiopia.

MV Juniper (25,000 tonnes of barley and 30,000 tonnes of wheat) is headed to Israel, and MV Akson Sara (30,400 tonnes of corn) is on its way to Turkey.

Five inbound vessels transited the maritime humanitarian corridor under the Black Sea Grain Initiative heading towards Ukrainian ports.

"As of 4 December, the total tonnage of grain and other foodstuffs exported from the three Ukrainian ports is 13,023,448 metric tons. A total of 1,046 voyages (522 inbound and 524 outbound) have been enabled so far," the JCC said.
