Vessels with Ukrainian agricultural products go mainly to western ports, and not to “starving” ones. countries of Africa and South Asia, Ivan Nechaev, deputy head of the information and press department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said during a briefing. The broadcast was conducted on YouTube.
“Unfortunately, so far not a single ship has reached the shores of the starving countries of Africa or South Asia. They go mainly to western ports,»,— he said.
The exported products are mainly not wheat, but corn grain and sunflower oil, which “casts doubt on the sincerity” Western statements that world food security depends on the grain deal, Nechaev said.
He drew attention to the situation around the Razoni ship with grain for the Lebanese port of Tripoli. “As it turned out, on board was not wheat that the Lebanese needed, but corn, and fodder. According to available information, they refused corn in Tripoli, and the cargo is waiting for new buyers,— said the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
