On Saturday, July 6, a ship of oil from the USA arrived in Odesa for the first time in the history of Ukraine. This was reported in the administration of the Odesa seaport.
It is noted that at 7:20 am at the berth No. 2N of the Odesa port, a tanker Wisdom Venture, which was under the banner of Hong Kong, delivered from the USA 75 thousand tons of oil.
