Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday told the leaders of France and Germany, Moscow was “ready” to look for ways to ship grain stuck in Ukrainian ports during Moscow’s military campaign.

“Russia is ready to help find options for the unhindered export of grain, including the export of Ukrainian grain from the Black Sea ports,” Putin told French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the Kremlin said.

“An increase in the supply of Russian fertilizers and agricultural products will also help reduce tensions on the global food market, which, of course, will require the removal of the relevant sanctions,” he added. – AFP
