First grain shipments to leave Ukraine 'this week'

Kyiv expects the first grain deliveries under a UN-brokered deal to leave Ukrainian ports "this week", 
Ukraine's infrastructure minister said Monday, despite Russian strikes on  Ukraine's Black Sea port of Odessa.

"We expect the agreement to start working in the coming days... We are  preparing for everything to start this week," Oleksandr Kubrakov, who led  Ukraine's delegation at grain talks in Istanbul, told a press conference.
