Turkish President Erdogan kept pleading, but Putin did not back down from his condition

The supply of grain exported from Ukraine is being affected. This is happening because Russia backed out from a deal. Turkish President Erdogan is repeatedly talking to Putin on this matter, but no positive result is visible yet.

The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is having an impact in many ways. Despite all efforts, Russian President Vladimir Putin is not agreeing to deliver grain from Ukraine via the Black Sea. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan tried several times to persuade Vladimir Putin, but Putin maintained a tough stance even after talking to Erdogan. Russia has made it clear that until the Western countries do not accept its conditions related to export of agriculture, there will be no relaxation on this issue.

Actually, grains are sent to African countries, Turkey and other countries from Russia, Ukraine and surrounding countries. Before the war, the deal was that Ukraine used to export grains to these countries through the Black Sea. Because this route passes through Russia, it is necessary to have an agreement with Russia. But this July, Vladimir Putin refused to accept this deal.

Russia has made it clear that if the ban on their ships, trading and other things related to agricultural exports is lifted, then they can consider restarting this deal. There are many countries around the African region, where more than 50 percent of the grain supply comes from Ukraine. Ever since the deal was ended in July, the food crisis has started increasing in these countries.

Russia had given this proposal

Amidst all the speculation, Russian President Vladimir Putin told that we are ready to give free grain to 6 African countries. We will give food grains to countries like Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Mali, Somalia, Eritrea, Central African Republic. For this, Russia will give 1.1 million tonnes of cheap grain to Turkey, so that it can supply to poor countries. However, the deal has not been finalized yet.

On one hand, Russia has refused this deal, while on the other hand, it has started bombing near Ukraine's port in the Black Sea. Russia is trying its best to ensure that Ukraine's ports do not function and the amount of exports it is able to export also reduces. Russia hopes that through this issue it can get exemption from the economic sanctions imposed by Western countries. However, right now no country seems to be showing leniency on Russia.

The impact of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is visible all over the world, especially Europe and African countries are facing its crisis. This fight, which has been going on for about one and a half years, may now take a new form, because Ukraine has recently changed its Defense Minister.
