The Russian Defense Ministry stated on Saturday that Moscow is suspending participation in the grain deal, which foresaw the transportation of food and fertilizers from Ukrainian ports via the Black Sea.

Over the past days, Ukrainian forces have carried out several terror attacks against Crimea and against Russian ships in the Black Sea. Meanwhile, a source in the UN noted that Russia plans to request a Security Council meeting regarding the issue.

In view of the terrorist attack, Russia suspends participation in the implementation of agreements on the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports to Europe.

The attacks were carried out by the Kiev junta on October 29, 2022, with the participation of British specialists, aimed against ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels involved in ensuring the security of the grain corridor.

The Russian foreign ministry also noted that the deal has been suspended indefinitely, since Moscow can’t guarantee the safety of the civilian vessels amid Ukrainian attacks.

The ministry added that the relevant instructions have been issued for the Russian representatives at the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul, which controls the transportation of Ukrainian grains.

The Russian Ministry of Defense said that the preparation of the morning drone attack on Sevastopol was carried out under the guidance of English specialists in the city of Ochakov.

According to the ministry, the attack involved 16 air and sea drones and slightly damaged the Russian naval minesweeper of the Black Sea Fleet.

Russian authorities had previously criticized the deal – while the accord was supposed to prevent food scarcity among the most vulnerable countries, a large amount of it ended up in Europe instead of Asia and Africa.

Commenting on the recent food deliveries, Russian Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev noted that from 60% to 100% of the food was apprehended by the EU nations, while the situation in the developing countries had deteriorated.

Russia is ready to deliver up to 500,000 tons of grain to the developing countries.

The agreement was struck on July 22 by Russia, Ukraine, and Turkey in order to provide a humanitarian maritime corridor for ships with food and fertilizer exports from Ukrainian ports — Odessa, Chernomorsk, and Yuzhnoe.

At the same time, Moscow noted that the part of the deal concerning Russian food exports was not working altogether, which may lead to the termination of the agreements.

The lies and anti Russian propaganda have gone on too long –

FACT= while the USA said ” its okay for Russia to export grain” – behind the scenes sanctions still applied on sea transport .

FACT = nearly all the grain went to Europe not Africa .

FACT= America looked bad stopping Russian grain to Africa and with the US elections coming up the African Americans would not have voted or reduced their vote for Biden– okay the Russian grain on the surface while leaving sanctions in place is typical US “forked tongue ” .

Endless attempts to demonize Russia. Since Napoleon and Hitler were ordered to invade the mineral-rich territory, its now the turn of NATO to establish the bloody Zionist agenda?
