The President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed with the claims of the head of the Kremlin, Putin, regarding the export of Ukrainian grain. He also proposed to restore the supply of grain from Russia.
This was reported by Anadolu Ajansı.
Today, Erdogan held a personal meeting with Croatian leader Zoran Milanovic. At a joint press conference, the Turkish president publicly supported Putin's grain blackmail. He stated that Ukrainian grain allegedly goes to rich countries and not to poor regions.
"Unfortunately, the grain that comes as part of grain consignments goes to rich countries, not to poor ones. While sanctions against Russia continue, the fact that grain supplies go to countries that impose these sanctions worries Putin ", - said Erdogan.
Moreover, the head of Turkey wanted to restore the supply of Russian grain.
"We want grain supplies from Russia to start, we are waiting for it," he said.
