Ukraine continues preparations for the export of agricultural products through sea ports. This was announced by the Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov.

“We do not trust Russia, but we trust our partners and allies, that is why the initiative on the safe transportation of grain and food products from Ukrainian ports was signed with the UN and Turkey, and not with Russia,” the minister emphasized.

He noted that July 23 Russia launched a missile attack on the territory of Odesa port.

“Thus once again showing the world his true intentions,” Kubrakov said.

According to him, Ukraine will not back down from its goal of unblocking sea ports.

“We continue the technical preparation for the launch of the export of agricultural products from our ports,” summarized the head of the Ministry of Infrastructure.

It will be recalled that two Russian missiles exploded this morning in the port of Odessa. The UN and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reacted to the attack.

On July 22, agreements were signed in Turkey regarding the unblocking of Ukrainian ports and the export of grain. One document was signed by Ukraine, Turkey and the UN. The second is Russia, Turkey and the UN. Kyiv and Moscow did not sign the general document.

According to the “grain agreement”, demining of ports will not be carried out, safe fairways will be used for the passage of ships; the composition of the coordination center, which will monitor the departure of ships from the ports of Ukraine, will include representatives of Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and the UN; full traffic of ships can start in a few weeks.
