Belarus and Ukraine are taking steps to restore river navigation on their shared river, the Dnipro. On Monday, Ukraine’s Sea Ports Administration signed an agreement with Beltopenergo, a Belarus oil trading company involved in constructing a commercial port at Nizhnia Zharia, a Belarusian village10 kilometers north of the confluence of the Dnipro and the Pripyat. Beltopenergo is to report on potential cargo flows and vessel sizes. The Ukrainian side is to study needed dredging depths. The entire 700 km length of the Dnipro in eastern Belarus is navigable. From Belarus, the river runs 1,100 km south through Ukraine to the Black Sea.
