The Black Sea Grain Initiative is under threat. Russian officials have questioned the grain corridor’s effectiveness and may be preparing to derail the initiative after the agreed-upon 120 days expire in November.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba at the meeting of the UN Security Council, according to the message of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“We must not allow Russia to resume its hunger games with the world. I call on all countries, especially those dependent on Ukrainian food exports, to exert maximum public and diplomatic pressure on Moscow, demanding that the Black Sea Grain Corridor be maintained in November and beyond. We have to protect the vital grain initiative together,” he said.

Kuleba emphasized that Ukraine remains a global guarantor of food security despite its own difficult situation and provides humanitarian food aid.

“Putin lied when he said that most of the grain went to European countries. In fact, we sent two-thirds of the grain to consumers in Africa, the Middle East and Asia,” said Kuleba.
