Russia is ready to agree to extend the grain agreement

Nov 15, 2022

Russia will agree to extend an agreement brokered by the United Nations, which allows the export of Ukrainian grain and other agricultural products from the Black Sea.

This was reported by Bloomberg, citing sources.

According to the publication, Russia is likely to allow the agreement to be extended after it expires on 19 November.


The publication's interlocutors did not specify whether Russia would try to add new conditions in exchange for an extension or any other details.

A spokesman for the joint body that administers the agreement from Istanbul said there was nothing to confirm or announce at this stage. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia would disclose its decision in due course.
