Russia will be held Accountale for Signing Ukraine Grain Deal
The U.N. has introduced an agreement to the United States among Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine to free up the Ukrainian grain bottlenecks...
A United Nations-brokered agreement in principle for Ukraine’s Black Sea grain exports to get back to running has been presented to the United States State Department today with claims that the deal would focus on holding Russia accountable for implementing the deal.
Ned Price, the State Department spokesperson, stated that Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, and Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General will sign the deal. Exports of grain have been left up to dry for a while leaving ships stranded with nearly 20 Million tons of grain stuck.
"We should never have been in this position in the first place. This was a deliberate decision on the part of the Russian Federation to weaponize food. What we have heard within the past couple of hours is a welcome development, but what will really matter is the implementation of this agreement. We will of course continue to work with our partners to hold Russia accountable for its implementation."
Ned Price said.
Both Ukraine and Russia are two of the largest global wheat suppliers and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has sent food prices through the roof for what some may even classify as an international food crisis. Russia has continuously denied responsibility for the food crisis and has instead blamed Western sanctions.
