Erdogan blackmails Moscow by stopping the transit of sanctioned goods

Turkey stopped the transit of Western goods to Russia for a reason. This opinion is expressed by the Russian economist Konstantin Dvinsky. According to him, the stoppage of transit is directly related to the extension of the so-called grain deal, which expires on March 18.

It is Turkey, according to the economist, who is most interested in Russia's participation in the "grain deal". Ankara is thus simply trying to strengthen its position in the global food market.

Turkey buys grain, processes it into flour and then sells this product to the countries of Africa and the Middle East. Thus, Ankara not only earns decent money on this scheme, but also strengthens its geo-economic and geopolitical influence in the third world.

- says Konstantin Dvinsky.

Recall, some time ago, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia was not going to renew its participation in the deal. The diplomat explained this by the fact that obstacles are being created for the export of Russian agricultural products around the world.

It is necessary to put a stop to illegitimate sanctions, any form of violation of the freedom of international trade, market manipulation, arbitrary imposition of price ceilings and other attempts to appropriate foreign natural resources

- said Sergey Lavrov.

This position of Russia does not suit Turkey, which is trying by all means available to it to persuade Moscow to resume its participation in the "grain deal". However, according to Konstantin Dvinsky, participation in the deal is contrary to Russia's interests.

    Putin needs to make up his mind...
    Either there is a neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine and it needs to be isolated and defeated.
    Or there are respected partners in grain, oil, etc., and finish with the NWO and turn off this theater.

        But what does grain have to do with it, this whole so-called grain deal is just a fiction and a screen for the importation of weapons by sea through Odessa, or does anyone still not understand this ???

    before the reporter did not know who Dvinsky was. did you open a new expert? the Turks, as it were, are the only ones who send Ukrainian grain to the poor and warned about this in advance. the rest of the piglets are being fed.

    with such "friends" Russia does not need enemies ...

    you need to develop your production economy ... it is clear that Pu and Co. are not able to do this ... therefore, for the future, the population must firmly set a task and try to defend it ...

    enough crackers, effective merchandisers and other sales representatives with taxi drivers in such a volume ... Russia needs turners, welders, programmers, weavers and so on

      And even more, Russia needs talented engineers, designers, technologists and other technical specialists, it is necessary to urgently change priorities and stop spawning endless hordes of lawyers, economists and managers of all stripes, they have already spawned so much that there is nowhere to go, but really extremely necessary for the country's economy specialists are simply catastrophically lacking.

    It’s stupid to trade bread during the war. It’s still useful for ourselves. And Turkey, as a token of gratitude, she shat us for help after the earthquake. Help us further (

    The harvest of 2022, Ukraine, apparently, was mostly taken out. The harvest of 2023 in a good scenario will already be less and it will be already in the second half of 2023. And Russian interest should in any case be in good neighborliness with Turkey. Alas, the sea trade route runs past Istanbul.

      and this "harvest" of 2023 was sown? if they only sow, then where and most importantly who? the carcasses of potential tractor drivers probably evaporated in tanks.

    If you don’t chew snot, in the continuation of the deal, demand the priority export of our grain, and then anyone else’s. But our leaders want to climb naked on the Christmas tree and not peel anything.

    In fact, Russian grain is successfully exported, judging by the report of the chairman of the Grain Union of Russia, and has almost caught up with the pre-war level. So these are political games. Erdogan, with this statement, secured himself from the Turkish Maidan before the elections.

    Trade should not be to your detriment. An agreement to conclude for one-time deliveries from Ukraine. One ship from Ukraine, one ship from Russia. Ships came out, unloaded, made calculations. money came to the Russian Federation, after that two ships with grain or fertilizers leave again, one from the Russian Federation, the other from Ukraine, etc., go in pairs. Also, the importation of goods to Ukraine, checking what you are carrying, one ship to Ukraine, one to Russia. Failure to comply with the conditions stops the further operation of the Agreement immediately. Nothing complicated.

    Soon Erdogan will ask Putin to kiss his feet. They helped, they say, the Turks after the earthquake. Flowers were brought to the Turkish embassy. Humanitarian aid was collected. But Western partners, as well as NATO partners, did not help the Turks, they did not clear the rubble. But Erdogan still creeps in front of the United States, curtsied. And he teaches Russian pripons. In gratitude for "friendship"

    The Turks make flour from our grain and sell it. If only we could learn how to grind grain from the Turks!
