Polyansky: We will continue to raise the issue of grain exports to the UN

Dmitry Polyansky, Deputy Representative of Russia to the UN, noted that the Security Council has not recently discussed the export of Russian and Ukrainian grain under the Istanbul Agreement, and that Russia will continue to raise this issue.

“This topic is regularly reviewed at briefings, and the UN evaluates it a little differently, where they do not criticize themselves, but try to bypass these facts,” Polyansky added.

He continued: “While some members of the United Nations claim that everything is going according to plan and that the deal is working … It is difficult for them to criticize themselves.”

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that only 3% of grain shipments from Ukrainian ports are delivered to countries in need.

Putin instructed Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to negotiate with the UN on the supply of grain and fertilizers from Russia to countries in need and expressed Russia’s readiness to send fertilizers to poor countries free of charge.
