Finalizing an agreement on Ukrainian grain exports

A member of the Ukrainian negotiating delegation said that grain shipments will resume from three ports under Ukrainian control.

– Export will be carried out through three ports – Odessa, Bivdnyi and Chornomorsk. But MP Rustam Omirov says, but we hope to expand it in the future.

It should be under the supervision of the United Nations

He adds that transportation security will be monitored by a UN team based in Istanbul. But he does not believe that Russian ships should be allowed into Ukrainian waters.

– We do not trust them even if they sign an agreement with the United Nations. This is an attacking country, says Omerov.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the route for exporting products from Russia will also be opened with the agreement.

– When we solve this problem, the export route will be opened not only for grain and sunflower oil from Ukraine, but also for products from Russia.

– Although these Russian products are not affected by the sanctions, there are obstacles in terms of shipping, insurance and the banking system. Cavusoglu adds that the United States and the European Union have made promises to raise these promises.
