Quote from Yermak: "The Russians have fired missiles on Odesa. Yesterday the export of grain by sea was agreed, and today the Russians are hitting the port of Odesa. This is a Russian diplomatic dichotomy."

Details: According to Yermak, the Russians are systematically creating a food crisis and doing everything they can to make people suffer.

"The terror by hunger continues. The world must act. The best guarantees of food security are twofold: effective sanctions against Russia and more weapons for Ukraine," the head of the President’s Office concluded.

On 22 July, at the Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul, representatives of Ukraine and Russia signed an agreement on the establishment of a mechanism for the export of Ukrainian grain from the Black Sea ports.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the morning missile attack by the Russians on the port of Odesa calls into question the Ukrainian grain export agreement which was signed the day before.
