In July 2023, Russia announced its withdrawal from the “grain agreement”, allegedly due to non-compliance with its terms. After that, the Russian Federation began shelling Ukraine’s ports and grain infrastructure.
The United Nations is doing everything possible to restart the Black Sea Grain Initiative. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said this on Wednesday, September 20, Ukrinform reports.
In particular, in a speech at the UN Security Council in New York, he said that the UN is working with all parties to continue the export of Ukrainian grain.
“We continue to work with all parties to resume safe exports of grain and fertilizers from Russia and Ukraine. This must be put on a stable basis without the threat of further disruption,” Guterres said.
The UN Secretary General added that the organization is “fully committed to the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.”
Let’s recall that earlier the Secretary General of the UN proposed that the Russian Federation extend the grain agreement in exchange for the export of fertilizers.
