Russia's withdrawal from grain deal creates many problems for world

Jul 18, 2023

Russia's decision to withdraw from the grain deal has created many problems for the entire world. It is completely unjustified.

According to RBC-Ukraine, this was stated by the head of the EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, in a commentary to journalists.

"I am very sorry to say today that Russia has refused to extend this agreement. This is something very serious that will create a lot of problems for many people around the world," Borrell said.

According to him, the European Union will do everything possible to make Ukrainian grain available to those who consume it through solidarity corridors.

"I have to condemn Russia for this decision, which is completely unjustified and turns people's hunger into a weapon," the EU diplomat added.

He also said that he considers Moscow’s accusations of restricting the export of Russian agricultural products through sanctions a "complete nonsense”.

As a reminder, on July 17, Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov officially announced that his country would not extend the agreement.
