EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell urged Russia to reverse its decision to suspend participation in a deal to export Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea.

“Russia’s decision to suspend participation in the Black Sea deal threatens a major export route for much-needed grains and fertilizers to overcome the global food crisis caused by Russia’s war against Ukraine. The EU calls on Russia to reverse its decision.” wrote Borrell on twitter.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, in turn, urged all parties to continue the “essential initiative to save lives”. “Any Russian move to disrupt this critical grain export is essentially a statement that people and families around the world should pay more for food or go hungry. By suspending this agreement, Russia is once again turning food into weapons in the war it unleashed,” Blinken said.

On October 29, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that Russia would suspend its participation in an agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain due to a drone attack on ships in Sevastopol.
