Russia suspends participation in Black Sea grain deal

MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Kremlin announced on Monday that Russia was suspending its participation in the Black Sea grain export deal. The deal, signed by Russia and Ukraine in July 2022 after mediation by the United Nations and Turkey, aims to avoid a global food crisis by allowing Ukrainian grain exports through the Black Sea in complete safety despite the conflict. After several extensions, it is due to expire on Monday and Russia has been reiterating for weeks that the conditions of the new extension have not been met.
