Russia has offered safe passage to Ukrainian grain ships through Black Sea ports, while Turkey has suggested that ships around Sea Mines could be guided at sea.

Russia on Wednesday offered to provide safe passage for Ukrainian grain ships through Black Sea ports, but has not claimed responsibility for the construction of the corridors, according to international media reports.

Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzia, said: “We are not responsible for establishing safe passages, however, if the corridors are established we can provide safe passage for Ukrainian ships.”

According to the report, in addition to Russia, Turkey has also made a proposal to help Ukraine’s grain ships.

Turkey has suggested that Ukrainian ships around the Sea Mines could be guided at sea.

He said Ankara was still awaiting Moscow’s response to the plan.

He added that since it is known where the sea mines are located, some safe passages will be built at the three ports.

It is believed that since the Russian invasion and the blockade of ports, the supply of Ukrainian grain has stopped, which has led to a rise in global prices of grain, cooking oil, fuel and fertilizer.

The United Nations is seeking an agreement to restore Ukraine’s exports and Russian food and fertilizer exports.
