Russia suspends its participation in the so-called “grain deal” – an agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain across the Black Sea. This was stated by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
The decision to suspend participation in the transaction was made due to drone attack on ships in Sevastopol, which the governor of the city and the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on October 29.
According to the Ministry of Defense, the ships that were attacked participated, among other things, in ensuring the security of the “grain corridor”.
“In view of the terrorist act carried out by the Kyiv regime with the participation of British specialists against ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels involved in ensuring the security of the“ grain corridor ”, the Russian side suspends participation in the implementation of agreements on the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports,” the Russian military department said. .
What else did the Russian Defense Ministry say today?
- The port of Sevastopol was attacked by drones. Russia blamed Ukraine and the UK for the attack – and announced its withdrawal from the “grain deal”
After the invasion of the territory of Ukraine, Russia blocked the Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea, through which a significant share of the country’s exports went.
In the summer, the parties, through the mediation of the UN and Turkey, agreed to resume the export of Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea.
Later Russian President Vladimir Putin repeatedly declaredthat the grain exported as part of the deal allegedly leaves the poorest countries, contrary to the original agreements. He also allowedthat the deal would not be renewed if it turns out that the “grain corridor” was used to deliver explosives for undermining the Crimean bridge.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spokethat Russia is delaying the exit of Ukrainian ships from the Black Sea ports and wants to disrupt the “grain deal”.
Where did the Ukrainian grain go anyway?
- Putin claims that almost all grain ships from Ukraine went to Europe, and not to the poorest countries. This is true? Answer in one picture
