“We should do everything possible to ensure the interests of our agricultural producers to support their traditional customers, consumers, but also our friends in developing countries, as all of us say now, African countries,” the Russian head of State said.
According to Dmitry Mazepin, Chairman of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) Commission, Russian companies established partnerships with 26 African countries for the shipment.
Mazepin denounced that the companies had problems working in foreign markets, “more than 400,000 tons were frozen in European ports, including the Baltic ones.”
Earlier, Rebeca Grynspan, Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), reported that the next batch would go to West Africa.
This summer, Moscow signed an agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain from Black Sea ports and a memorandum of understanding with the United Nations Secretariat to promote Russian foodstuffs and fertilizers for world markets, which involves lifting restrictions on their export.
