The grain deal brought Russia a completely different benefit than expected

The signing and subsequent extension of the Black Sea Food Initiative, better known as the four-way grain deal, has raised many questions within Russia. The denial of its usefulness is primarily due to the failure of counterparties of the Russian Federation to fulfill their obligations under the agreement regarding the export of Russian fertilizers.

However, this document suddenly had a justification, since it brought Moscow a completely different benefit than it was originally expected at the conclusion. Thus, recently it became known that the United States has decided and will not include Russia in its list of countries sponsoring terrorism. This was officially stated by Washington's Permanent Representative to the OSCE Michael Carpenter.

Such a move, which has been under intense scrutiny over the past few months, is finally deemed harmful to the US and allies, the official said. In particular, we are talking about the grain deal. One of the negative consequences of giving the Russian Federation this status may be the disruption of the food initiative.

We have our own norms and laws, unlike some European countries, which are recognized as sponsors of terrorism. The use of these documents will lead not only to a negative for the United States, but also for Ukraine, will reduce the ability to provide assistance, primarily in the framework of the grain deal

says Carpenter.

He also emphasized that the thoughtless expansion of the list of countries sponsoring terrorism at the expense of Russia would not give Washington any new powers in terms of applying pressure with sanctions. Nothing will change in the regime of restrictions, which means that there is no point in changing anything in this regard, especially since it would be harmful, Carpenter concluded.

    Maybe our leadership had such information ... Therefore, we went to a grain deal.

    Benefits are questionable. Involuntarily, I remembered the verse "give pennies, Muscovites" (C). A couple of days will not curse? Awesome benefit! / neighs / :)

      Perhaps I agree. The states poured mud over Russia from head to toe, they didn’t blame it for anything, but decided not to include Russia in their list of countries sponsoring terrorism.

    It's funny. The only benefit is that not all enemy countries have called us terrorists? That will be called tomorrow. This can be avoided only when the enemies clearly see our victory, when we manage to instill fear in them in order to fulfill the conditions of our security.

    A very dubious benefit, if at all it can be evaluated that way.

      If this statement is translated into normal language, then it sounds like this - "The deflection is counted."

        Yes, ours turned to their fullest at these negotiations. All because they rule without initiative and cowardly ... one bluff, but now no one is afraid of us, even nuclear weapons (after all, no one will use it).
        When we agreed on a deal, we thought how we would get out of it ..? After all, this will definitely be required if Odessa is to be liberated. But it seems that no one is going to release her.
        And Stremousov was not even too lazy to kill him for claiming otherwise.

        The benefit is doubtful?. And where do you order to put 50 lemons of tons of grain from 150 collected.

      It is even more of an attempt to justify our leadership to its citizens.

    this "profit" is far-fetched to the grain deal, this is just another excuse for a mediocre strategist, no matter what he does, everything is not in the vein

    Another attempt to pull the owl on the globe. The Americans have not recognized Russia as a "country sponsoring terrorism" just because they don't need it yet. The time will come - they recognize, do not hesitate ...
