Russia: We gave Ukraine a chance … and the wheat deal became impossible

Amidst the storm of accusations made against it by many Western countries in the past two days, following the suspension of the agreement on the export of wheat from Ukraine, and after Russia confirmed on Tuesday its readiness to help the “countries” in need, “the Russian State Duma saw that his country had given Ukraine a chance through the agreement.

The chairman of the Russian Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, added that Russia gave the Ukrainian side the opportunity to export grain that should have gone to the most needy countries in Africa and Asia, so only 3-4% went in these countries, while most of the quantities went to the rich countries of the European Union.

Zelensky’s actions went beyond the bargain

In a post on his official Telegram channel, he also felt that the actions of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky exceeded all agreements reached with the participation of Turkey and the United Nations, which indicates the terrorist nature of the Kiev regime, as he claimed.

He stressed that resuming the wheat deal became impossible, especially after the security corridor was used to launch terrorist attacks, as he said.

It also found it unacceptable to use the safe route to launch Ukrainian terrorist attacks against the ships of the Russian Black Sea fleet.

These developments came just hours after Russia’s permanent representative in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, confirmed his country was ready to supply 500,000 tons of grain.

He also added in a tweet on his Twitter account that these quantities of wheat will reach countries in need for free.

The West had criticized Moscow for suspending the implementation of this agreement, accusing it of exacerbating the problem of food security globally, in particularly for Africa and other countries in via development, which were strongly affected by the start of the Russian military operation on Ukrainian soil, on February 24, in terms of grain import, in particular grain, and rising prices globally.

Suspension of the initiative

Interestingly, Russia’s decision to suspend the initiative came after announcing on Sunday that it found the wreckage of the drones that attacked its fleet last Saturday in Sevastopol. in Crimea, noting that it used the designated safe passage for grain export. He raised the possibility that one of those drones was launched from one of the civilian vessels chartered under the Black Sea Initiative. This accusation was also repeated in front of the Security Council on Monday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin asked Kiev to guarantee the safety of ships passing through the grain export corridor, considering it a “threat to the safety of city ships”.

However, despite the Russian decision, the movement of ships resumed yesterday in the Black Sea with the support of the United Nations and Turkey, while Moscow warned of the “danger” of continuing to implement the agreement without its participation.

Interestingly, the initiative to export Ukrainian wheat across the Black Sea, which is controlled by Russian ships, ended last July under the auspices of the United Nations and Turkey, reducing food security problems, especially in some parts of the world in via development which are heavily dependent on grain imports.
