U.N., Turkey, Ukraine to go on with the Black Sea grain deal

On Sunday, the United Nations, Turkey and Ukraine “agreed on an Oct. 31 movement plan for 16 vessels that are in Turkish waters, a day after Russia suspended its participation to the Black Sea grain initiative that allowed food exports from Ukrainian ports,” Reuters reported.

The Istanbul-based Joint Coordination Centre of Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish and U.N. personnel said in a statement that the three latter delegations “had also agreed for inspections to be provided on Monday to 40 outbound vessels,” whereas the “Russian delegation was informed of both plans.”

On Oct. 29, Russia announced that it suspends its participation in the deal because of the attack on its warships in Sevastopol. Later, it said the RF is ready to completely substitute Ukrainian grain with the Russian one.

Both the United States and the European Union condemned this move by Russia. “It’s purely outrageous,” U.S. President Joe Biden told reporters in Delaware. “It’s going to increase starvation.”
