Russia’s decision to suspend participation in the “grain deal” is outrageous, said on Saturday, October 29, US President Joe Biden.
The American leader expressed the opinion that the decision of the Russian side “increases hunger”, although Moscow “has no reason to do this,” informs RIA News.
On October 29, Russia officially notified the UN Secretary General of the suspension of participation in the “grain deal”. This decision was made after the Armed Forces of Ukraine used the humanitarian corridor for the export of food from Ukraine as a cover for the attack on the Sevastopol raid.
The European Commission then said that all parties should refrain from any unilateral action that could jeopardize implementation of the “grain deal”.
In Kyiv, Russia was accused of withdrawing from the agreement “under a far-fetched pretext”, as well as that Moscow allegedly began deliberately exacerbate the food crisis back in September.
