The Naval Forces of Ukraine informed about temporary corridors for merchant vessels heading towards Ukrainian ports. There is a military threat and mine danger along all routes.

The Navy reported this on August 10.

Earlier, Ukraine already proposed these routes in an appeal to the International Maritime Organization (IMO). They will primarily be used for the exit of civilian ships that are in the Ukrainian ports of Chornomorsk, Odesa, and Pivdenny since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia on February 24, 2022.

If the owner or captain of the vessel officially confirms readiness for sailing in the prevailing conditions, the vessel will be allowed to the route.
