Kuleba explained why the attack on the fleet in Sevastopol — is only a reason for the Russian Federation to withdraw from « grain initiative

The attack against Russian ships in the bay of occupied Sevastopol was just an excuse for Moscow to withdraw from the «grain deal», since steps to disrupt it began long before that. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba.

Kuleba noted that between the conditional corridor through which grain carriers were sent to Ukrainian ports and back, and Sevastopol — about 220 km.

«Russia planned this (withdrawal from the initiative — ed.) long before that. The current queue of grain carriers has been accumulating in the Black Sea since September, when Russia began to deliberately slow down the corridor and try to disrupt the agreement. RF decided to resume «hunger games» for a long time, and now he is looking for excuses for this», — Kuleba noted.

According to him, now about 2 million tons of grain on 176 ships are waiting in line at sea.

  • On October 29, Russian ships in the Sevastopol Bay were attacked by drones.
  • The Russian Ministry of Defense accused the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the British military of attacking the Black Sea Fleet.
  • Russia announced its withdrawal from the “grain deal” after the drone attack in Sevastopol.
