Ukraine is ready for Russian provocations during grain export from Ukrainian ports.

Head of the Joint Coordinating Press Center of the Defense Forces of the South of Ukraine Natalia Gumenyuk stated on the air of the informational telethon, answering the question whether Ukraine should prepare for provocations of the Russian Federation when exporting grain from ports.

“We are always ready for provocations, since the terrorist country is already known in the world by its definition. And today’s rocket attack on the Odessa region is proof of this,” she said.

According to Gumenyuk, the grain export operation is provided with a military component, and “silence mode” will be the best for it.

“We are aware of the enemy’s insidiousness, we understand that one cannot trust those who do not adhere to their agreements,” she added.

At the same time, Gumenyuk did not say exactly what the answer would be if the Russian Federation attacks a ship with Ukrainian grain, but expressed hope for an “absolutely adequate” reaction from the world community.

“Here it is impossible to predict in a broad perspective, but international agreements and guarantees are obtained for this, so that the entire world community interested in solving the food crisis is involved in this and is effectively involved,” she noted.
