NATO supports the passage of the Russian blockade in the Black Sea

According to a media report, three civilian freighters broke the Russian blockade in the Black Sea after Russia cancelled the grain agreement.

According to the U.S. business magazine “Forbes”, the ships from Israel, Greece and under the Turkish-Georgian flag were accompanied by several NATO aircraft on their journey to a Ukrainian grain port in the Danube delta, as the German news platform reported.

Recently, Russia has announced to withdraw from the agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain after a little over a year as the German news website ZDF announced. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia would resume compliance with the agreement as soon as its demands were met. The July 22, 2022 agreement, which has already been extended twice, was meant to ensure the safe passage of grain-laden ships from three Black Sea ports in Ukraine through the Bosphorus despite Russia’s war of aggression. The ships sail along a corridor 310 nautical miles long and three nautical miles wide. Last year, nearly 33 million tons of grain were exported from Ukrainian ports in this way.
