Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, speaking during his nightly address, said he was grateful the key export route has been maintained and suggested Russia’s influence over the Black Sea was weakening.
Mr Zelensky said previously that Ukrainian forces have succeeded in diminishing Moscow’s military strength in the Black Sea.
On October 31, he said greater support from Kyiv’s allies could lead to victory over Russia. Earlier last month, a weapons depot supply Russia’s Black Sea Fleet was hit in a missile strike.
The Black Sea is a key theatre in the war with Ukrainian air and drone attacks on Russian military targets damaging ship and naval repair yards in the port of Sevastopol.

The recent move in support of Ukraine that Putin’s ally warned could spark World War III
Russia’s former president Dmitry Medvedev has issued yet another warning to Ukraine’s allies.
In an article penned for Rossiyskaya Gazeta, a newspaper serving as the official gazette of the Russian government, Mr Medvedev argued Poland’s support to its neighbour may trigger clashes with Russia and Belarus.
Mr Medvedev, who was president of Russia between 2008 and 2012, wrote: “Poland’s own military buildup and Polish military presence in Ukraine may trigger a direct confrontation between Warsaw and Belarus and Russia.
“In this case, the allied group will give an appropriate response to prevent threats that stem from the evil ambitions of the Polish establishment.”
Mr Medvedev, who is the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, added this situation could soon escalate, given Warsaw is part of NATO, and members of the military alliance are committed to react whenever an armed attack is committed against one of its states.
