The United Nations, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine have issued long-awaited procedures for merchant ships which export Ukrainian grain and fertilizer through the Black Sea.

“The Parties will not undertake any attacks against merchant vessels or other civilian vessels and port facilities engaged in this initiative,” the document said.

The deal to restart Ukraine’s Black Sea exports is overseen by a Joint Coordination Centre (JCC) in Istanbul made up of Turkish, Russian and Ukrainian military officials and UN officials.

The JCC will provide information on the planned movement of ships through the maritime humanitarian corridor, which will be shared with Russia, Ukraine and Turkey’s military to prevent incidents.
