“According to the Ukrainian grain export plan tentatively agreed in Istanbul last week, the export will be carried out through three ports of Ukraine and will be managed by a group under the auspices of the UN.”
According to “Report”, Rustam Umerov, a member of the Ukrainian delegation at the talks with Russia, deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, informed the local press about this.
“Exports will go through three ports: Odessa, Yuzhny and Chernomorsk, but we hope to be able to expand them in the future. All recommendations of the Navy and the armed forces must be followed,” he said.
The deputy noted that all civilian ships will be able to enter Ukrainian ports on agreed safe routes: “We will sell grain to everyone. And all ships that can freely follow these recommendations can approach us.”
R. Umerov stressed that the monitoring group operating under the UN in Istanbul will monitor compliance with security rules, and Russia will not influence this process.
It should be recalled that as a result of the Istanbul meeting held on July 18, an agreement was reached on the preparation of a final written document on joint control in ports and security on the routes of grain-carrying ships.
