Quote: "Today (27 September - ed.) yet another false statement was made in Moscow regarding a very important achievement of Ukraine and our partners - the restoration of our grain export by sea.

It is obvious that Russia is preparing the ground to attempt to derail the grain initiative. We are informing our partners about this.

Export statistics are absolutely transparent and available to everyone in the international community."

Details: Zelenskyy said that more than 5 million tonnes of agricultural products were being exported from 3 Ukrainian ports, and 232 vessels had departed.

Looking at African countries alone, Ukrainian agricultural products have already been exported to Algeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia.

Reminder: Russian President Vladimir Putin repeated his previous statements that grain from Ukraine allegedly continued to bypass the poorest countries and declared that it was the West who was "provoking the food crisis".
