The Foreign Ministry insisted on the simultaneous start of grain exports from Russia and Ukraine

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hopes that the parties to the “product deal” will fulfill their obligations not only to export grain from Ukrainian ports, but also to lift restrictions against Russia that affect the export of Russian grain

Grain exports from Russia and Ukraine should start simultaneously, said Deputy Foreign Minister Andrey Rudenko, RIA Novosti reports.

“These two documents were signed at the same time, so they should be implemented in exactly the same way,” — he said.

Russia hopes that, together with the solution of the issue of exporting grain from Ukrainian ports, partners will lift restrictions on the export of Russian grain, the Deputy Foreign Minister noted.

With the beginning of Russia's military operation in Ukraine, dry cargo ships with the country's grain for export were blocked in seaports. The Ukrainian authorities and the UN accused Russia of blocking the courts. The Russian Ministry of Defense has said ships are unable to leave ports because of Ukrainian mines at sea and the risk of shelling.

Foreign leaders have warned of the risk of global famine. Meanwhile, UN Secretary General António Guterres suggested that Western countries lift part of the sanctions against Russia in order to prevent a global food crisis.

On July 22, Russia and Ukraine separately signed an agreement on a “product deal” with intermediaries— Turkey and the UN. The document regulates the exit of ships with grain from the Ukrainian-controlled ports of Odessa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny. According to him, first Ukrainian pilots will accompany the vessels, and then the Russian, Turkish fleet and another side, which has not yet been disclosed.

The parties agreed to establish a coordination center in Istanbul, which has already started working on July 26. Responsible persons should inspect ships at the exit and entrance to the Black Sea so that the ships could not transport weapons and ammunition, as well as resolve conflict situations.

Kyiv has already begun to prepare ports for the export of grain. Deputy Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Yuriy Vaskov assumed that the first ship could leave the port in four days. All three ports can start operating within three weeks.

Russia and the UN signed a memorandum to promote the promotion of Russian agricultural products to world markets. The organization must remove barriers to the supply of food and fertilizers, including the lifting of sanctions against Russia in this vein.

The talk was about sanctions on insurance, the admission of Russian ships to foreign ports and the entry of foreign ships into Russian ports, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov explained. He said that these restrictions hinder the export of Russian grain.
