BIMCO has received a further update on developments in Ukraine which are provided below together with a renewed call to respond to the survey.
The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) has recently launched a survey concerning corrupt practices in Ukraine. Such practices may take many forms e.g. demands for facilitation payments (low level payments paid to low level government officials to complete routine tasks the company is entitled to), cash payments or in kind requests made by various port authorities.
All Ukrainian ports are working normally. No additional restrictions relating to martial law have been introduced in the ports.
As reported some years ago under the heading "Ukraine Ballast Water Problems in Ports" this still seems to be a problematic issue as BIMCO has received an update from the the Japan Ship Owners' Mutual Protection & Indemnity Association.
