A The Ukrainian minister’s claim is made after the Russian Federation abandoned the agreement in July to facilitate the departure of agricultural products via this sea route.
Despite the Russian abandonment, Solski points out that Ukraine, for the second month in a row, is “unilaterally” sending its own ships via the Black Sea route, despite recognizing that the situation “is clearly complicated”, for security reasons.
“We would like to have more security, but we are not sitting around waiting. We are trying as much cereal as possible. But we hope that the security situation will improve,” he added.
Solski made these statements during the meeting of European Union Agriculture ministers taking place today in Luxembourg.
Regarding the possibility of restoring the Black Sea agreement in the near future, Solski said that this “is in Russia’s hands”, but that he sees no signs of such a restoration.
