A Liberian cargo ship carrying 52,500 tonnes of wheat from Ukraine has docked at Chittagong port for the first time since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war.

Magnum Fortune arrived at the outer anchorage of the port on Wednesday evening, Abdul Quader, food controller (storage and movement) of Chittagong division, told UNB Thursday.

The cargo ship will move to the silo jetty for releasing the food grain after the testing of samples, he added.

The government bought the wheat under its government-to-government (G2G) agreements with Russia and Ukraine after India turned down Bangladesh's request for wheat import.

Earlier, as part of the agreements, Bangladesh already received more than one lakh tonnes of wheat from Russia in two shipments.
