Agreement on ‘grain corridors’ signed on Ukraine’s terms – Kubrakov

The agreement on exports of grain and other foodstuffs from the Ukrainian ports was signed on the terms of our country.

"I believe that we sign this agreement on our terms, because our water area is fully controlled by us," Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov said during the nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Pursuant to the agreement, no Russian aircraft or ship will have the right to approach the corridor, through which the grain will be exported, or Ukrainian territorial waters, he emphasized.

"No one will check anything in our ports and in our water area," Kubrakov noted.

According to him, exports from the ports will be resumed in a few days.

On July 22, an agreement was signed on exports of grain and other foodstuffs from the Ukrainian ports following a quadripartite meeting in Istanbul between Ukraine, Turkey, the United Nations, and Russia.

Two mirror agreements in trilateral format were signed. The agreement was signed by Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov on behalf of Ukraine, UN Secretary General António Guterres on behalf of the UN, and Defense Minister Hulusi Akar on behalf of Turkey. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu signed the agreement in the same format on behalf of Russia.
