Russia does not consider it necessary to attract other countries that could escort vessels with grain from the ports of Ukraine. Petr Ilyichev, director of international organizations of the Russian Foreign Ministry, told RIA Novosti about this.

“Given that the Kyiv authorities managed to ensure the safety of routes within their territorial waters, we see no need to involve third countries to escort ships,” – said Ilyichev.

At the same time, it is worth noting that UN Secretary General António Guterres recently arrived in Ukraine. On Friday, August 19, he plans to arrive in Odessa, and the next day he will visit the Joint Coordination Center (JCC) in Istanbul as part of a product deal.

Diplomat Ilichev stressed that representatives of Turkey work in the JCC, Ukraine, Russia and the UN. He also commented on how the center itself works: the mechanism monitors the movement of goods, and also coordinates the inspection of ships.
