Ukraine says martial law not affecting Azov Sea grain exports so far
KIEV, Nov 28 (Reuters) - The imposition of martial law is not affecting Ukrainian grain shipments from ports on the Azov Sea thus far and they can be diverted to the Black Sea if necessary, Ukraine's acting agriculture minister told Reuters on Wednesday.
More broadly, the prospects for grain exports from the Azov Sea are unclear at this point, Maksym Martyniuk said in messaged comments.
Ukraine began martial law in some areas of the country on Wednesday, imposed after Russia captured three Ukrainian vessels over the weekend in what Kiev fears could be a precursor to a full-scale Russian invasion.
