Grain deal: what did Russia get in return for refusing to liberate Odessa


Agreements between Russia and the UN and Ukraine with this organization (the agreements were concluded not directly between the two countries, but through the mediation of Ankara) regarding the export of Ukrainian grain were finally signed in Turkey. Formally, Kyiv and the countries that will be supplied with food have received all the benefits. And also the whole world, which still achieved its goal.


Ukraine receives access to the Black Sea, that is, it retains the status of a maritime power, which it lost after the loss of Kherson, part of the Zaporozhye region and Mariupol. Also, the regime of President Vladimir Zelensky, as a result of an international grain deal under the auspices of the UN, will receive huge budget revenues, which, obviously, will be spent on armaments and the fight against Russia. And, of course, it will strengthen its geopolitical image.

It is reported that control over the ports of Odessa, Chornomorsk and Yuzhny remains with Ukraine. The presence in these ports of other ships, except for those that are supposed to ensure the export of grain and related foodstuffs and fertilizers, is not envisaged. Simply put, by signing the paper, the Russian side refused to liberate Odessa and the region in which these ports are located.

But what did our country get in return for another fairly broad gesture of goodwill? If we analyze the evening news tape, it characterizes the concessions of the West in response to the actions of the Russian Federation:

The Lithuanian company LTG Cargo resumes the transit of sanctioned goods between Russia and the Kaliningrad region from the 22nd;

Biden's national security aide Jake Sullivan claims that the US does not intend to provide Ukraine with ATACMS missiles (range up to 300 km);

Possible delivery of US fighter jets to Ukraine in the near future is not considered - the White House.

In general, this list is quite enough to understand the nature and scope of the agreements, which are much broader than the papers signed in Turkey. However, one important fact should be taken into account in this aspect. Namely, that the refusal to attack Odessa and infrastructure (even for 120 days, which easily turns into a permanent ban), the passage of foreign ships to the ports of Ukraine, the ban on the deployment of warships - all these provisions are officially enshrined, they bear the signature of the Minister of Defense Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu and UN Secretary General António Guterres. But the West's concessions are classic out-of-frame promises that the US-led anti-Russian coalition very often violates. Replaying everything back is a matter of several hours.

Actually, the current hot phase of the conflict in Ukraine began precisely with the refusal of the West to give not bare promises, but guarantees of its behavior towards the Russian Federation. It is unlikely that anything has changed in the position of Washington, Brussels in five months of NWO. Since 1991, the West has been distributing its notorious "promises" quite willingly, only it is not going to fulfill them. The deal in Turkey will be no exception.

    Russia signed an agreement on the export of grain from Ukraine to the Black Sea with Turkey.
    The document was signed by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Turkish counterpart Hulusi Akar under the testimony of UN Secretary General António Guterres.
    After that, a similar document was signed by the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov.
    According to Shoigu, the signed memorandum involves the involvement of the UN in lifting restrictions on the export of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers to world markets. The second signed document defines the algorithm for the export of Ukrainian agricultural products from the Black Sea ports controlled by Kyiv, he noted.

    Namely, that the refusal to attack Odessa and infrastructure (even for 120 days, which easily turns into a permanent ban), the passage of foreign ships to the ports of Ukraine, the ban on the deployment of warships - all these provisions are officially enshrined, they bear the signature of the Minister of Defense Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu and UN Secretary General António Guterres.

    I did not really understand where it says "refusing to attack Odessa" in the first passage.
    Again, Russian agricultural products and fertilizers will also be supplied to world markets, and I don’t see anything wrong with that.

      Now I am writing about the source of the citation, so it is overwritten tightly.

    The Kremlin, realizing that it completely screwed up with the SVO, went on another betrayal: to leave almost the entire territory and access to the sea to Ukraine. A glorious series of treacherous deals from Khasavyurt and Minsk and 1 and 2 continued with a new "bread" deal. How it will end is already clear: Russia will be accused by the West of another violation of the agreements, as well as under the treacherous Minsk agreements. We stepped on the same rake and will soon get hit in the head. But history teaches nothing to the Kremlin if it signs such agreements under the pressure of a hostile press.

    The Western media attributed this deal to their credit as a result of the effective pressure of the Russian Federation, and there is a reason for this:
    1. Ukraine during the war is doing everything possible to prevent famine in the world - that's how white and fluffy she is, who will refuse her political, economic, military, informational and other support
    2. The UN has shown its effectiveness and care for the hungry all over the world and thus supported its significance and authority.
    3. For the exported grain, Ukraine will receive monetary compensation and buy the most modern weapons, which are so persistently sought and which are difficult to acquire for nothing.
    4. The Russian Federation will spend free of charge on ensuring the security of grain convoys, and the guarantee of non-use of the cleared waters of Odessa will allow Ukraine not only to maintain access to the sea routes, but also to remove equipment and troops from this direction and transfer them to where they are needed
    5. For all this, the Russian Federation will receive the right to export its agricultural products and fertilizers under the close supervision of Western "partners" from the so-called. "unfriendly" state formations.

    And yet, it is not clear through what channels the Russian Federation (and Belarus? The Russian Federation and Belarus are the Union! State and how they should act together, and not every man for himself) were allowed to sell agricultural products and fertilizers.
    If according to international ones (exchanges, banks, insurance agencies, freight, etc., etc.), then this will actually mean that the West takes full control of all foreign trade of the Russian Federation with agricultural products.

    Isn't it too tendentious negative approach in the publication?
    Russia made a forced compromise: it did not let world public opinion turn against itself - it avoided accusations of organizing famine in underdeveloped countries.
    If the "pro-Ukrainian" agreement is violated unilaterally, then no one will prevent the Russian Federation from doing the same!

      What is the global community? EU, English speaking countries? For them, our country in all cases, no matter what we do, will always be enemies. Admission of our grain to international markets, at what prices and under what conditions? Who gave guarantees for uninterrupted export? UN. So after all, it is not it that pays, but multinational companies and what do they WANT? And how the media shouted that we would not give anything to the West, how proud we are and we have everything and we will defeat everyone. Not war, but solid gestures of goodwill.

      And when they fulfilled the agreements, never, there is nothing to negotiate with them, having deceived once and will continue to deceive, and our rulers, like foolish youths, again step on a rake on you. If in 2014, after the Ilovaisk cauldrons, ours would have gone further and strangled the Nazi reptile in the bud, then now Ukraine would have become Russia, there would have been no NVO and such terrible losses (for more than 10 years in Afghanistan), and our rulers concluded in In Minsk, an agreement that the Nazis did not comply with and trained and armed for 8 years, filled with concrete, and we have a NVO, then we capture, then we give up, no one is responsible for losses, for communications and logistics, and the enemy uses all this, railways, mobile phones and, radio communications, bridges, electricity, etc., there is such an opinion that the more our soldiers and soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who died, the better for our and their leaders, this is some kind of Western Masonic conspiracy, but there is something to think about. ...

    Simply put, by signing the paper, the Russian side refused to liberate Odessa and the region in which these ports are located.

    I would not say that this conclusion is so obvious. What a bunch of assumptions. In addition, the grain, in principle, has long been exported. At the beginning of the year, there was a scandal in Ukraine that ALL grain was exported and sold, including for the country's internal needs.

    UN Secretary-General António Guterres condemned the missile attack near the port of Odessa. It is reported by Reuters with reference to the representative of the Secretary General Farhan Haq.
    According to him, missile attacks on the port of Odessa threaten the agreements on the export of grain from the ports of Ukraine, which, in turn, could exacerbate the global food crisis.
    Earlier, war correspondent Yuri Kotenok reported on a missile attack on the port of Odessa. He announced at least two missiles that hit Ukrainian military facilities in the port of Odessa. In total, he wrote about five explosions. Ukrainian resources also confirmed the hit of two missiles on the seaport of Odessa.

      After the guarantees of the Russian Federation on safety and non-use of demining, it would be foolish not to take advantage of this opportunity to store and store weapons and ammunition in the port area of ​​​​Odessa.

    Everything seems to be correct from the point of view of an ideal policy. And war is the art of the possible. Let's read it differently - it is beneficial for Russia to minimize the confrontation in the Black Sea region of Ukraine for 120 days and get a deferral of escalation in Kaliningrad .. These 120 days will probably be spent on other (more important) fronts, preparing the army in terms of increasing its size and additionally equipping it with new equipment for more effective military operations, as well as the transfer of the economy to the mobilization option. And then you have to somehow get away from the stigma of an aggressor and demonstrate your ability to negotiate in the eyes of countries that have not joined the sanctions. Otherwise, complete isolation may occur. So far, the Russian government is showing a good ability to balance on a razor's edge and even defeat one of the best armies in Europe. Let's wait and see. It is never too late to fall into a thermonuclear conflict.

    Grain deal: what did Russia get in return for the refusal to liberate Odessa.

    I wonder where the author of the article saw the clause on the refusal to liberate Odessa?
    No, I understand: everyone writes about it here. But no arguments are given. Type is obvious.
    It is clear to me that there is no denial. It's all-Kyiv propaganda.

    the regime of President Vladimir Zelensky, as a result of the international grain deal under the auspices of the UN, will receive huge budget revenues, which, obviously, will be spent on armaments and the fight against Russia

    Logical blunder: we have ten - twenty - thirty times the amount for sale.
    But Kyiv will strengthen, and Russia will weaken. How so? But Kyiv propaganda is not guided by logic. She needs to convince the Russians that everything is bad with us, but everything is fine with them, the Nazis.

    The author believes that an exchange took place: Russia was given permission to transit to the Kaliningrad region in exchange for transporting grain. This is complete nonsense. There is no connection to these two episodes. The author is apparently not destined to know that when Lithuania gained independence, it signed an agreement that it would not create obstacles for the free transit of goods by rail. As for Odessa, no one promised anything to anyone there. This is another good will of Mr. Putin.
