This is stated in his comments on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

He stressed that the problems associated with the imposition of sanctions against Russia with bank payments, transport logistics, insurance and "frozen" assets are aggravated.

The Deputy Foreign Minister added that without solving these problems, there is no talk of continuing the Black Sea Initiative after July 17.

According to Vershinin, Russia is ready to immediately launch an ammonia pipeline along the Togliatti-Odessa route, but the Kiev authorities have been slowing down this initiative for almost a year.

He also stressed that Kiev, with the support of the United States, "does not put a penny in the interests of ensuring food security and fighting hunger in Africa."
