The Ukrainian side did not stop the movement of goods through the "grain corridor", even despite russian military attacks on the port and energy infrastructure. Also, 15 cases of russian UAVs and aircraft approaching the prohibited distance to civilian vessels participating in the Initiative were recorded.
At the same time, it should be noted that the actual blockade of the "grain corridor" by the russian federation began back in September. This was made by artificial delay and reduction of the number of inspections, which led to the creation of a queue of 176 vessels with 2.1 million agricultural products on board. In this manner, it becomes obvious that russia's intention is to provoke mass famine in the needy lands of Africa and Asia, and also to create a hostile food shortage in the whole world.
We would like to emphasize that since the first ship left, we managed to export more than 9 million tons of food, of which more than 5 million tons – to the countries of Africa and Asia. 190,000 tons of Ukrainian wheat were sent to countries on the verge of starvation within the World Food Program under the auspices of the UN.
