This was reported by the press service of the port administration.
“According to the results of the work summed up by the Mykolaiv Sea Port in 2021, 29.87 million tons of cargo were transshipped, which is 99.1% compared to last year and accounts for 16% of the total cargo turnover of all ports of Ukraine,” the report says.
