The deal to allow the safe transport of grain out of the Ukraine by sea is an unprecedented agreement between enemy combatants, but it is still a work in progress and the list of potential risks that could yet scupper it are long.

And we talk to Anna Biliuga, an agent for Eurogal Services, which acts as Lloyd’s agents inside Odesa, for a personal take on how the grain deal will play out on the dockside
