Russia to open 2 maritime corridors in Black, Azov Seas

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday that they will be opening up two maritime humanitarian corridors in the Black and Azov Seas in order to allow foreign ships to exit the area.

Russian National Defense Control Center head Mikhail Mizintsev assured, during a briefing, that Russia will guarantee the safe departure of the vessels. The passages will be open daily from 8 until 19 hours Moscow time.

Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba expressed his concerns over the proposition of the aforementioned corridors, calling it an "issue of trust" for Ukraine and saying that Russia could breach the agreement and sneak into the harbor to attack Odessa.
