There has been active discussion on resuming Ukrainian grain blockage. The Ukraine-Russia war has made it impossible to export grain from Ukraine via the Black sea. Turkey is trying to influence Russia to resume the export. The blockade will put the risk of starvation for millions of people.
Hulusi Akar, Defense Minister, Turkey stated, “both sides had agreed on ways to ensure the safety of shipping routes for grain ships, the agreement to get signed next week when more talks are set to held in Turkey.”
This is progress toward a better tomorrow. And, it does increase hope for compromisation and adjustment between countries at War. The deal to export Ukrainian grain will also be finalized in the view of the goodwill of all parties involved.
Ukrainian grain currently transported via road, rail, and naval routes. The opening up of the Danube estuary serves the purpose. But, it was able to transport only 2.5 million tonnes of Ukrainian grain last month. It is no doubt lesser than eight million tonnes per year on average before the war. As a result, Ukrainian ports named Odesa stacked with left grains.
Russia has been detrimental to stopping the shipments via the Black Sea. BBC features the Russian army stealing and exporting Ukrainian grain illegally.
However, Zelensky is still trying to look at the positive side of the story. The delegation showed hefty progress with the upcoming agreement. He is also cheerfully waiting for the display of the UN Secretary-general.
Diplomats notified the negotiation plans for the Ukrainian vessel. It was an effective guide to shipping Ukrainian grain in and out of ports. There were also several urges centering on Russia to agree for a truce. The insect ship featuring Russian fears of the weapon was on a smuggling fleet.
There is an effective advantage of not getting away. But, progress seems important and aims to reach a wider peace. With both parties, trying to reach a climbdown is not just swallowing pride. The deal will function as an effective advantage worldwide.
