The plan to export grain from Ukraine is not yet ready, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, RBC correspondent reports. “There are statements by our President [Vladimir] Putin, who said that Ukraine should clear the approaches to the ports, which will allow the ships, after checking by our military <…> go in there, load up with grain, and then follow, & mdash; he added, noting that “there are no clearer outlines yet.”
The day before, Bloomberg reported that Turkey and Russia reached a preliminary agreement to resume supplies of Ukrainian grain from the port of Odessa, but Ukraine, according to agency sources, was skeptical of the proposed scheme. In Kyiv, they fear that as a result the port will be vulnerable to Russian troops. Ankara expects that the situation will change after the plan is approved by the UN.
According to Peskov, in Moscow “they heard words of distrust from the Ukrainian side.” “Putin said that the Russian side would not use the corridors for the offensive,” — assured the Kremlin representative.
On June 2, the Turkish Anadolu agency reported that Russia, Ukraine and Turkey, with the assistance of the UN, have developed a “road map” that will allow the export and supply to the international market of about 20 million tons of grain and sunflower seeds that have been there since the beginning of the military operation. It was assumed that the details of the parties will be discussed at a meeting in Turkey.
On June 6, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced the dispatch of a Russian delegation to Turkey to negotiate the export of grain from Ukrainian ports. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that Kyiv was not invited to the meeting.
Putin had previously assured that Russia was ready to facilitate the unhindered passage of ships with grain. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba spoke about the need for international security guarantees.
