Vasily Nebenzya, Russia’s envoy to UN said, memorandum between Russia and UN, is not being implemented in the least.
Vasily Nebenzya, Russian Permanent Representative to the UN spoke on Friday, during the meeting of the UN Security Council on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine.
Nebenzya said, memorandum between Russia and UN implies that, UN has obligations to remove sanctions for exports of Russian fertilizers and agricultural products to international markets. It is not being implemented, even to the least level.
Nebenzya said, “Western countries completely ignore the agreement between Russia and the UN Secretariat, avoiding even mentioning it in the draft Security Council products. This agreement is not in the least being implemented”.
Nebenzya said that, West must remove the entire chain of operations accompanying Russia’s agricultural exports from sanctions within 60 days, for which the grain deal has been extended.
Vasily Nebenzya explained that, “We officially notified the Ukrainian and Turkish sides that we have no objection to extending its [the deal’s] validity for 60 days after March 18, that is, until May 18. Further steps will depend on advancement in solving the problems we have identified.
If Washington, Brussels and London are really interested in continuing the export of food from Ukraine through the sea corridor, they have two months, with the assistance of the UN, to remove the entire chain of operations accompanying Russian agricultural exports from their sanctions”.
