Russian U-turn allows grain deal to resume


Russia indicted Ukraine on Saturday of using a safety corridor for grain vessels to attack its line in Crimea.

still, the UN, Turkey and Ukraine continued transferring vessels indeed after Russia halted its support for the deal.
Now, Russia’s defence ministry says Kyiv has given written assurances not to use the route for military action.

But Germany’s foreign minister said it showed what the transnational community could achieve if it refused to be blackmailed by Russia.
The deal was brokered by the UN and Turkey in July, bringing to an end a five-month Russian leaguer of Ukrainian anchorages that trapped millions of tonnes of grain and sunflower oil painting and transferred food prices soaring.

Under the agreement, vessels are allowed to sail through a safe corridor before being audited by a special collaboration platoon in Turkey and also heading on through the Bosphorous Strait.
The deal ends on 19 November and those involved still have to agree to extend it. According to the UN,9.8 m tonnes of grain, oil painting and soya sap have been transported in further than 400 shipments around the world since the operation began on 3 August.

How important grain has been packed from Ukraine?
Russia had for some time hovered to end its involvement before publicizing last Saturday that it was halting its support, condemning Ukraine for a drone attack on the Black Sea line grounded at Sevastopol in Crimea.

The UN stressed that there had been no vessels in the safe corridor on the night of the Sevastopol attack and Ukraine dismissed the move as a” false rationale”.

Russia had advised that continuing with the deal without its involvement would be dangerous. nonetheless, vessels continued to use the route, to the extent that a record,000 tonnes left Ukrainian anchorages on Monday alone.
Four days after Russia suspended its part in the deal, its volte-face was revealed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after a call between Russia’s defence minister and his counterpart in Ankara.” The grain transports will continue as agreed before as of noon moment( 0900GMT),” he said.

Shortly latterly, Russian news agencies verified his reflections. Defence ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov told state television that Russia had entered” written guarantees” from Kyiv that both the safe corridor and Ukrainian anchorages” will not be used for conducting military operations against the Russian Federation”. Russia considered those guarantees were sufficient at the moment, he added.
The UN functionary ordinating the grain deal, Amir Abdulla, praised Turkey’s part in the addresses and ate Russia’s decision. still, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock emphasised that Moscow had backed down.

” Russia has again tried to use hunger as an armament, to use grain as an armament,” she told the German website, Die Welt.
” The world community has made clear No, we do not believe your falsehoods, we will continue to shoot vessels. so the poorest in the world don’t have to suffer so largely from this war of aggression.”

A day before the Russian change of heart, the Kremlin said President Vladimir Putin had spoken to the Turkish leader averring a thorough disquisition into the attack on the Black Sea line before the grain deal could renew. Russia’s defence minister Sergei Shoigu had also bandied the deal for the alternate day running.
Outside Russia, political judge Tatiana Stanovaya said the Kremlin had fallen into a trap from which it didn’t know how to get out” It turned out that the Kremlin doesn’t influence to stop grain exports,” she twittered.

The price of wheat, sludge and rapeseed fell on news of Russia lifting its suspense on Wednesday, reversing increases seen in the request of the future since Monday.
