10 grain carriers left the bay of Odessa, heading for Turkey: Erdogan announced Russia's indecision

Despite Russia's withdrawal from the grain deal, Ankara continues to export grain from Ukraine. So, on October 31, 10 grain carriers left the port of Odessa, heading for Turkey.

According to Recep Erdogan, even if Russia behaves indecisively, Turkey will continue its efforts to deal with grain.

Thanks to the export of 9,3 million tons of grain from Ukraine to world markets, we have weakened the consequences of the food crisis. We intend to continue these efforts

- said the Turkish leader.

In addition, Western countries continue to indirectly participate in the grain deal. The day before, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken expressed regret over the fact that Russia suspended its participation in the export of grain from Ukrainian ports.

10 grain carriers left the bay of Odessa, heading for Turkey: Erdogan announced Russia's indecision

Moscow's withdrawal from the grain deal was initiated due to the recent terrorist attack by the Ukrainian armed forces against the ships of the Black Sea Fleet at the base of Sevastopol, during which the Russian fleet was attacked by a UAV. At the same time, the Russian embassy in London stated that the UK was involved in the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and that the incident is a clear sign of the direct participation of the British special services in the Ukrainian events.

Along with this, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky called for the need to convene a meeting of the Security Council of this organization to discuss the current situation. The UN advised Kyiv to refrain from any actions that jeopardize the implementation of the grain deal.

    Until now, I have not understood what is the benefit of Russia in this deal? Well, it’s clear that some people were put in their pockets, but the Ukrainians earned millions for weapons from this deal.

      All this points to Russia's negligible weight in the international arena. About her warnings, the red lines have all become, just wipe their feet, because she can’t influence anything, she doesn’t have any serious levers of influence. Even the only real military man, who, like a favorite rattle, was shaken in the Kremlin in front of "partners" in recent years, turned out to be a zilch. And everyone understood this. And once they understood, they simply put the "big bolt" on the opinion and threats of the "great raw material superpower" Unpleasant, right? But there's nothing to be done, now you have to live with it. Oh yes! I almost forgot - Russia has the last "lever" - "the whole world is in ruins" - "we will die as heroes, and they will just die"! What do you think? Is it time to start preparing for this? wink

    It is necessary to thoroughly shy away from the energy structure of the ports involved in the shipment of grain.

    The Russian Federation cannot allow decisive action, because in response Turkey can spoil the Russian Federation a lot, such as closing the Bosphorus and Dardanelles for the passage of military and merchant ships of the Russian Federation, closing the airspace out of solidarity with the EU, greatly complicating the logistics and supply of troops in Syria, under the plausible a pretext to block the blue and Turkish flows, to intensify subversive activities in the Turkic and Muslim regions of the CIS and the Russian Federation, and much more, and the Russian Federation is forced to reckon with this.

    ¿ No es más fácil, frente al mundo, ocupar Odesa sin barcos extranjeros?. Me preocuparía si entran barcos, en especial barcos turcos.

    Spent a torpedo on the lips. These ships were either to be sunk or escorted to Russian ports. But I am 100% sure that the Russian authorities will pretend that nothing happened. As always, misery and insignificance.

    The maximum that Russia can do is to arrest ships before the end of hostilities in the Black Sea in order to ensure the safety of civilian crews.

    The only way to stop it is by launching missile and torpedo attacks on ports, merchant ships will be hit, but these are the costs of hostilities, some ships will leave, someone will drown. Everything needs the will of Putin.
