Kremlin Announces Meeting in Sochi

Yesterday, Friday, the Kremlin announced that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would hold talks in the Russian city of Sochi on 4 September.

Expired Grain Agreement

The grain agreement expired on July 18, and Russia informed Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Nations of its opposition to the extension of the agreement. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously said that the terms of the deal for Russia have not been met despite international efforts, as Western countries have no intention of keeping their promises. Putin has repeatedly stressed that the West has handed over most of the Ukrainian grain to its countries, pointing out that the main goal of the grain deal, which is to supply countries in need of it, including African countries, has not been realized.
