“And in this regard, it is not critical— because it will not render special, decisive help, this is a relatively small amount of Ukrainian grain,— but, nevertheless, it is very important that this grain gets to the world markets, and also that those indirect restrictions that apply to our goods also allow the market to receive additional volumes of fertilizers, and grain, and so on. And Putin in Tehran spoke about the direct connection of all this, & mdash; noted Peskov.

Since the beginning of the military operation in Ukraine, Kyiv and Western countries have accused Moscow of blocking ships with grain and other agricultural products in Ukrainian ports.
