The agreement, signed last July between Moscow and kyiv, mediated by Ankara and the United Nations, has so far allowed the export of 9.7 million tons of cereals and sunflower products from three Ukrainian ports.

Moscow suspended the pact in protest at a drone attack on its military fleet in Sevastopol, a port located on the annexed Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, but after numerous phone calls between the top Turkish and Russian leaders, it today agreed to reactivate it.
