The president of Türkiye also announced a phone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, which should take place later today.

As reported by Ukrinform, on October 29, the Russian Federation said it was suspending participation in the Black Sea Grain Initiative, justifying its decision with the drone attack on a warship in Sevastopol Bay, for which it blamed Ukraine and Great Britain.

Despite Russia's demarche, 12 bulkers carrying grain left Ukrainian ports the day before. On Tuesday, the UN announced that there will be no movement of vessels along the "grain corridor" on November 2. On Thursday, November 3, eight ships carrying agricultural products will set off along the "grain corridor" in the Black Sea.
