The European Union is considering a naval mission to unblock maritime trading routes in the Black Sea and resume agricultural exports from Ukraine.

“The EU is ready to mobilize all possible resources to facilitate the export of grain stored in Ukrainian silos and ports,” the newspaper said.

The issue will be considered on Monday at the summit in Brussels. In particular, it is about efforts to resume exports from the port of Odesa.

As Vigilant reported, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron spoke over the phone on Saturday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, after which politicians said that Putin “wants to allow grain exports from Ukraine, especially by sea.”

As reported, seaports have been blocked in Ukraine as a result of Russian armed aggression. This threatens serious problems in the global food market.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that Russia is trying to disrupt the export of Ukrainian grain even via alternative routes.
