The Turkish Defense Ministry announced the departure of 9 ships with food from Ukrainian ports today, Tuesday, as part of a grain deal.
Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN signed on July 22 in Istanbul two documents concerning the problem of supplying food and fertilizers to world markets, in the so-called “grain deal”. As part of this deal, the UN should commit itself to lifting various restrictions on the export of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers to world markets, while the first part of the deal determines the algorithm for the export of Ukrainian agricultural products from the Black Sea ports, which are under the control of Ukraine.
Despite this, according to Moscow, according to the second wind associated with the export of food and fertilizers, the deal does not work yet.
