Russia’s position on the grain deal will depend on progress in normalizing agriculture. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin, reports URA.RU.
Russia has agreed to support the extension of the grain agreement. The second mandate of the Black Sea Initiative ends on March 18, 2023.
Sergei Vershinin, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, noted that despite the comprehensive nature of the agreements proposed by the UN Secretary General, Russia accepts an extension. However, notes the Russian politician, the agreement will only be extended for 60 days. The future position of the Russian Federation according to the agreement will depend solely on the degree of normalization of internal Russian agriculture.
