Ukraine President Zelenskyy suggests grain export initiative expanded


President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that the country stands ready to intensify agricultural commodities exports to the countries that need them.

He added that the perspective of the ‘grain corridor’ expansion was discussed with UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

“We agreed that the initiative should not only be preserved, not only protected from any attempts to disrupt it, but also expanded,” the President said.

Previously president of russia putin again accused Ukraine of violating the terms of the grain export initiative. in partnership with the US agrarian TV channel RFDTV conducted a fact-check and explained why putin’s words about exports via the ‘grain corridor’ are a lie and an attempt to put pressure on Ukraine.

As a reminder, in early September putin already tried to disrupt Ukraine’s grain export from the ports of Big Odesa. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy explained why putin’s accusations were groundless and nothing but manipulation.

The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine stressed that the initiative signed by Ukraine, the UN and Turkey on the safe transportation of grain and foodstuffs does not provide any restrictions on the geography of exports.
