Russia, together with Turkey, is ready to supply the poorest states with up to 500,000 tons of grain free of charge in the next four months. This was stated by the Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Dmitry Patrushev on Saturday, October 29.

According to him, the Russian Federation has always been and still remains a reliable partner, informs TASS. “I am ready to provide the world with the necessary amount of food… We will do this with the participation of our reliable partner, Turkey,” Patrushev said.

Representatives of Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and the UN signed in July in Istanbul package of documents to solve the problems of supplying food and fertilizers to world markets. According to the memorandum, the UN undertakes to remove restrictions on the export of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers to world markets. The second document is intended to determine the algorithm for the export of Ukrainian agricultural products from the Black Sea ports controlled by Kyiv.

At the same time, the Russian side has repeatedly stated that in terms of exports from the Russian Federation, the deal is not yet working. So, diplomats in October pointed out that sanctions from Western countries continue to impede the supply of Russian agricultural products to the world market.
