Zelensky called anti-ship systems a guarantee of opening ports
Kyiv is working on obtaining anti-ship systems, and this is not about threats, but about port security guarantees, Zelensky said. In the Russian Foreign Ministry, Kyiv, which is asking for new weapons, was previously accused of “direct provocation”
Ukraine is not ready to export grain through Belarus, the best guarantees for unblocking ports will be the supply of anti-ship weapons to Kyiv, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told reporters.
He was asked what guarantees Kyiv considers acceptable in order to clear the ports for the export of grain.
“Weapons that we can deploy in the region. We are working on this and will get anti-ship systems. These are not threats. These will be the best guarantees, & mdash; answered Zelensky (quote from “Suspilna”).
At the end of May, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia, regarding the unblocking of Ukrainian ports, “has long guaranteed” everything that depends on it. According to him, if Kyiv clears these ports of mines, then on the high seas, the Russian fleet will ensure the unhindered passage of ships with food to the Mediterranean Sea and further to their destinations. Speaking of Ukraine's requests for arms supplies, the minister noted that the country had crossed “all the limits of decency”; and arranges “a direct provocation aimed at drawing the West into hostilities.”
Tomorrow, June 7, the Russian delegation will head to Turkey to hold talks on organizing the process of exporting grain from Ukrainian ports. According to Anadolu, the meeting will discuss the “road map” that Russia, Ukraine and Turkey have developed with the assistance of the UN. This map includes route, insurance and security issues for grain ships, including port clearance.
Another possible option for the export of grain— through Belarus. As President Alexander Lukashenko said, Minsk is ready to organize the supply of Ukrainian grain to the Baltic ports of Germany, Poland, the Baltic countries and Russia, if it is allowed to ship its own goods as well.
