The Interfax news agency reported that Russia’s foreign ministry has said it will only open access to Ukraine’s Black Sea ports if sanctions against the Kremlin are removed.
Ukraine, one of the world’s biggest grain producers, used to export most of its goods through its seaports, but since Russia sent troops into Ukraine, it has been forced to export by train or via its small Danube River ports.
UN food chief David Beasley appealed on Wednesday to Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying: “If you have any heart at all, please open these ports.”
