Turkish president Erdogan instrumental in grain deal but not to blame for its collapse says Putin

The agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain was signed on July 22, 2022; a year later, Russia withdrew from it without waiting for the promised compliance with the conditions

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan played a significant role in concluding the grain deal. It is not Russia’s fault that this agreement was not extended. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced this on Tuesday, June 12 at a meeting with the head of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hakan Fidan.

“President Erdogan also played a significant role in concluding the so-called grain deal. It’s not our fault that, unfortunately, it was not extended,” RIA Novosti quotes the words of the head of state. 

The grain deal was concluded on July 22, 2022. It involved the export of Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea and the lifting of restrictions on the export of Russian food and fertilizers to world markets. The Russian side has repeatedly noted that the terms of the agreement concerning Russia were not fulfilled, and Ukrainian grain was sent not to needy countries in Africa, as was initially said, but to Europe. As a result,  Russia withdrew from the grain deal  a year after its conclusion
