Ukraine is insisting on the establishment of an alternative corridor.
The Kremlin believes this corridor has nothing to do with the prospects for reviving the Black Sea grain deal.
This will help save hungry people in the poorest countries.
Ukrainian border guards intercepted a conversation in an open communication channel between the Russian occupiers and a vessel passing near one of Ukraine's seaports.
The National Security and Defense Council is calling for the resumption of the grain corridor’s operation under international security guarantees.
This also applies to vessels sailing to Ukrainian seaports in the territories temporarily occupied by Russia.
This would allow Ukrainian ports to be unblocked fully, which would have a positive impact on the economy.
The Ukrainian president said it is necessary to continue implementing the grain initiative even without Russia.
Russian presidential spokesperson Peskov said the Black Sea Grain Initiative was no longer in effect.
Erdogan said the deal would be extended beyond its current expiration date of 17 July through the efforts of the UN and Turkey.
Hungary wants less Ukrainian grain to be transported through its territory.
The UN would like the Black Sea Grain Initiative to be extended.
According to an expert, three countries - Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey - could ensure the safety of navigation in the Black Sea.
Despite this, all the entities on which the operations of deep-sea ports outside the framework of the grain corridor depend are working on the issue.
Russia sees no prospects for its operation.
Currently, 67 vessels are awaiting inspection in Turkish territorial waters.
Vessels traveling to or from Ukrainian seaports are not being inspected.
The JCC has announced that it was impossible to draft an inspection plan because of the Russian delegation’s latest groundless refusal to register inbound vessels for participation in the Grain Initiative.
