The UN continues efforts to remove barriers and obstacles to the export of Russian food and fertilizers to world markets. This was stated on Monday at a briefing by the official representative of the Secretary General of the world organization Stéphane Dujarric.
The routes of movement of grain exported from Ukraine are determined as part of commercial transactions, it can be processed into flour, which will then be re-exported, Dujarric said in response to a request from a TASS correspondent to comment on the statement by the Turkish Minister of Agriculture that only 5.4% of the total exported from Ukraine food delivered to poor countries.
“As for the routes for sending grain, I urge you to get acquainted with the detailed reports of our colleagues at the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul. It is also important to keep in mind the following two points. First, the grain is sent to certain places where it is ground into flour and re-exported. We do not track the movement of grain after it has been unloaded from the vessel. Secondly, these are commercial operations in which we do not interfere. In addition, it is important to note that this initiative as a whole has led to a decrease in global food prices, which helps people around the world,” he said.
