Ukrainian wheat can be transported to Croatia via the Danube river to Vukovar, and then onward to Rijeka, on the Adriatic sea, and other ports, Butković told reporters on Wednesday, state broadcaster HRT reported.
However, the capacity of the Vukovar port is limited, while the capacities of the other ports have been leased, he added.
