Britain is negotiating with allies to send warships to the Black Sea. This option is being considered to protect Ukrainian vessels carrying grain, the exit of which is blocked by Russia.
This was reported by The Times.
"Britain, together with a 'coalition of the willing,' will seek to break the Russian blockade in a few weeks by providing a 'protective corridor' from Odessa through the Bosporus," The Times writes.
Britain, according to the publication, began to consider such an option, fearing that time was running out to prevent a global food crisis.
In addition, the U.S. said it was sending long-range missiles to destroy Russian ships.
Meanwhile, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis, who discussed the corridor with British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, said some NATO and other countries that depend on Ukrainian grain supplies could join the coalition.
Egypt, hit hard by a wheat shortage, could also presumably take part.
