Russia Created 2 Humanitarian Corridors for Ships in Black and Azov Seas

Russia has created two humanitarian corridors in the Black and Azov Seas, according to the country’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on a conference call in Moscow.  

“A set of measures is being implemented to ensure the safety of navigation in the waters of the Black and Azov Seas. […] The mine danger in the waters of the port of Mariupol has been completely eliminated,” he said.

Western countries have repeatedly accused Russia of obstructing the export of Ukrainian grain and provoking its shortage on the world market. Moscow, in turn, rejects all the accusations and insists that it does not interfere with the export of wheat from Ukrainian ports.

As Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, stated, Russia does not prevent the export of wheat from Ukraine – if Kiev demines the ports, then ships will be able to leave them. He also said that grain can be exported via other routes.

The President added that the market share occupied by grain blocked in Ukraine has little impact on the global economy. In addition, Putin pointed out that the threat of a food crisis arose because of the behavior of Western countries.
