OREANDA-NEWS  Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said that the grain deal to create a safe corridor for the export of Ukrainian grain from the ports of Odessa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny has been extended. The quote is given by TASS.

According to Grushko, the process of lifting restrictions on the export of agricultural products from Russia — this was assumed by the second part of the agreement — is proceeding, but slowly.

The agreement was signed on July 22, 2022 between representatives of Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and the UN. The Joint Coordination Center (JCC) in Istanbul is responsible for coordinating the movement of ships. At the same time, the deal also assumed the lifting of restrictions on the export of Russian fertilizers. At the same time, Moscow believes that this part of the deal is not being fulfilled.
