KIEV - Ukraine, one of the top global grain exporters, has supplied about 800,000 tons of grain to China so far this year, in line with a loan-for-grains deal signed in 2012, a Ukrainian deputy agriculture minister said on Tuesday.

Yaroslav Krasnopolsky told a news conference that the volume included maize and barley for the domestic Chinese market and some wheat that was bought by a Chinese company for export to other countries.

He said that Ukraine would be able to export a total of 3 million tons of grain, mostly maize, to Chinathis year, a forecast unchanged from previous estimates.

Agriculture Minister Oleksiy Pavlenko told Reuters in June that Ukraine, which last year exported about 2 million tons of grains to China, planned to export at least the same volume in 2015.
