Wondering what they would comment on! The deal that Putin buried in the Black Sea put the USA in a rage
The document on the shipment of grain products from Ukrainian ports, under the auspices of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, on the 22nd of last July, Turkey, RussiaSigned by Ukraine and the United Nations (UN). It’s been three months since this deal. At the end of three months, the Russian Ministry of Defense terminated the Grain Corridor Agreement with the statement it made yesterday. While wondering about the US’s comment on the subject, the first statement came.
In a written statement, US Secretary of State Blinken said, “The United States regrets the suspension of Russia’s participation in UN-mediated Black Sea Grain Initiative operations. We urge all parties to continue the operation of this vital, life-saving Initiative. The Black Sea Grain Initiative has already delivered more than 9 million metric tons of food. “It’s been critical for low- and middle-income countries and lowered prices. It’s been successful and should continue.”
Pointing out that Russia’s action to disrupt this critical grain export will cause people and families around the world to spend more on food or go hungry, Blinken said, “Russia, which suspended this regulation, is using food as a weapon again in the war it started, which is low. and middle-income countries and global food prices, exacerbating already dire humanitarian crises and food insecurity.
Ukrainian President Zelensky also made statements regarding the suspension of the agreement. Noting that a similar decision from Russia has already been expected in recent times, Zelenski said, “Today, a very predictable statement came from Russia that they finally canceled the grain export initiative. But in fact, their decision does not belong to today.”
Zelenskiy, who accused the Russian Federation of trying to prevent the movements of 176 ships leaving the Ukrainian ports within the scope of the grain corridor agreement since September, said:
“Russia deliberately started to aggravate the food crisis in September when the movements of ships loaded with our food were blocked. Since September, 176 ships that cannot follow their route have accumulated in the grain corridor. This is the food of more than 7 million consumers. Some grain carriers have been waiting for more than three weeks. Algeria, Egypt , Yemen, Bangladesh, Vietnam, these and other countries may suffer from a new exacerbation of the food crisis, which Russia deliberately provoked.”
Calling both the United Nations and the G20 countries to react to Russia, Zelenski said, “Ukraine has been and can continue to be one of the guarantors of global food security. Russian terrorism and blackmail must lose. Humanity must win.” he said.
