Details: Zelenskyy thanked the port workers and everyone who ensured the safe functioning of the corridor.

"We call on allies to support our efforts by providing more air defence systems. Together we are able to protect freedom of navigation in the Black Sea and beyond," the president added.

Earlier: On 1 September, Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov said that two ships previously blocked due to the military action in the area left Ukrainian ports in the direction of the Bosphorus, carrying pig-iron and iron ore concentrate.

Kubrakov added that since 15 August, four vessels have already used the temporary corridor. It is primarily used by vessels that were in the Ukrainian ports of Chornomorsk, Odesa and Yuzhne at the time of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation.
