The leader addressed the issue while speaking with the press following talks with President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

As Ukrinform reported, Indonesian President Joko Widodo arrived in Kyiv on the morning of June 29. During the visit, before meeting with the Ukrainian leader, he visited Irpin to see the devastation caused by Russian troops.

Tomorrow, June 30, the President of Indonesia will visit Moscow, where he will meet with Putin.

As a result of hostilities and the blockade of Ukrainian seaports in Ukraine, more than 20 million tonnes of grain set to be exported under the UN World Food Program are stuck in Ukrainian silos.
