Turn on wheat, Ukraine and Russia to sign the agreement – politics

Turning point in Ukrainian wheat crisis: What should be the first real deal on Black Sea corridors to export grain from Ukraine’s ports will be signed in Istanbul on Friday. After all, February 24 was the first agreement between Moscow and Kiev since the start of the war. It is no coincidence that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will also attend. It was announced by the office of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the chief negotiator of the deal, which will be signed by Russian and Ukrainian representatives at the lavish Dolmabas Palace on the Bosphorus.

A deal is understood to be in the air since a meeting in Tehran three days ago between Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who spoke of “progress in Ukrainian wheat exports”, which he described as a “good sign”. However, Putin insisted that any deal should also include restricted exports of Russian wheat. For his part, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, “When we solve this problem, the export route will be opened not only for wheat and sunflower oil from Ukraine, but also for products from Russia.”

Hence the breakthrough and announcement. “The wheat export agreement, which is of fundamental importance for global food security, will be signed in Istanbul under the auspices of President Erdogan and UN Secretary-General Guterres with representatives of Ukraine and Russia,” Turkish President Ibrahim Kalin’s spokesman said. .
A member of the Kiev delegation to the talks, Rustem Umerov, said exports could resume from three ports under full Ukrainian control: Odessa, Pivtenny and Chornomorsk. About 25 million tons of wheat and other grains are blocked in Ukrainian ports. The blockade that caused the world food crisis.
Meanwhile, the nuclear spectrum continues to hover over war, even as fears center on a possible accident at the Zaporizhzhia power plant at the heart of the conflict, rather than a clash between major powers. The Ukrainians accused the Russians of wanting to use the plant, Europe’s largest with six reactors, to store missiles, tanks and explosives. Moscow says Kiev’s forces aim to cause a “nuclear catastrophe in Europe” with their attacks on the site.

Ukraine, Lukashenko: ‘Let’s end it here, if we go any further there will be a nuclear conflict’

But fears that the conflict between Russia and NATO could potentially escalate to a nuclear conflict have not subsided. At least, that’s the warning from Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. “We will stop – said Lukshenko, Moscow’s most loyal ally – and then we will figure out how to live. There is no need to go further. Farther away is the abyss of nuclear war”. Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev used his usual belligerent tone to say that “as a result of events, Ukraine will lose what is left of its state sovereignty and disappear from the world map.”

On the ground, three people were killed and 19 injured in Russian bombing of Kharkiv in northeastern Ukraine in the past few hours. But of particular concern is the precarious situation at the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia power plant, which reported a Ukrainian kamikaze drone attack on the site on Wednesday, injuring 11 people, four of them seriously. The same sources said service buildings were hit but none of the plant’s reactors were hit. Kiev’s goal, Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for Moscow’s Foreign Ministry, said today is precisely to create a “nuclear catastrophe.” The Ukrainians retaliate, with Russian forces compromising the plant’s security, still managed by Ukrainian technicians, and using it to store all kinds of weapons. “Russian military forces – announced as Energoatom, the state company that oversees nuclear power plants in Ukraine – are asking the power plant’s management to open the engine rooms of units 1, 2 and 3 to deposit full military weapons” . Last Saturday, the head of Energoatom, Pedro Kotin, accused Russia of using the plant to install missile launch systems.
