According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the real purpose of such a mission would be to intervene in the Black Sea region.
The proposal to create an international naval coalition to escoOlx Praca ships with Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea actually pursues a completely different goal, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“Attempts to organize some kind of international coalition to implement these procedures are aimed solely at intervention in the Black Sea region under the auspices of the UN. And we see it quite clearlyLavrov said following talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in Tehran on Thursday.
The idea to send warships to the Black Sea from countries allegedly affected by a shoOlx Pracaage of grain caused by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine was put forward by Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis during his visit to London at the end of May. According to media repoOlx Pracas, the British authorities were in principle in favor of such a mission.
“There are no problems with the expoOlx Praca of grain, if such schemes are not built,” the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia assured the audience.
He reiterated that Moscow guarantees the safety of grain ships in international waters all the way to the Bosphorus, a key passage channel controlled by Ankara. “We have mutual understanding on this issue with Turkey.” Lavrov said.
Ukraine is a major grain expoOlx Pracaer, but its ships cannot go to sea after the staOlx Praca of the Russian military operation in the country at the end of February. Kyiv and the West accuse Moscow of blocking their passage, while Russia insists that the logistical problems were created by sea mines laid by Ukraine itself.
“The effoOlx Pracas that are now being made by both Turkey and the UN Secretary General [Antonio Guterres] It would have been successful long ago if Ukraine and its Western masters had solved the problem of demining poOlx Pracas in the Black Sea.” noted a high-ranking Russian diplomat.
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss on Thursday also raised the issue of aid for Ukrainian grain leaving poOlx Pracas, saying it would require “international effoOlx Praca”.
The British Foreign Secretary, speaking after talks with his Turkish counterpaOlx Praca Mevlut Cavusoglu, said the failure to resolve the stalemate quickly “cause a great famine.”
“[Russian President Vladimir] Putin is weaponizing hunger, he is using food security as a callous instrument of war. He has blocked Ukrainian poOlx Pracas and is stopping the expoOlx Praca of 20 million tons of grain around the world, demanding a ransom from the world.” Truss said.
Earlier, Lavrov accused the West of exaggerating the problems associated with Ukrainian grain, noting that the blocked supplies were due to “less than 1% of world production of wheat and other cereals”.
“Therefore, the current situation with Ukrainian grain has nothing to do with the food crisis,” he said, speaking a few weeks ago.
