Head of the Ministry of Agriculture Patrushev announced Russia’s readiness to completely replace Ukrainian grain
Given the high harvest of 2022, Moscow is ready to completely replace Ukrainian grain and make deliveries to all interested states at affordable prices. This was stated by the Minister of Agriculture of Russia Dmitry Patrushev, reports on Saturday, October 29, RIA News.
“This year, 150 million tons of grain have already been harvested in Russia, and we estimate the export potential this season at more than 50 million tons,” said the head of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture.
Earlier on October 29, the Ministry of Defense announced that Russia was suspending participation in the grain deal after the attack of drones of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) on Sevastopol and the Black Sea Fleet stationed in the city bay. The military department pointed to the British involvement in the attack, calling it a terrorist act. It was also noted that the attacked ships ensured the security of the grain corridor.
The grain deal was signed on July 22 in Istanbul by Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN. The agreement involves the export of Ukrainian grain, food and fertilizer across the Black Sea from three ports, including Odessa.
