States will continue consultations with partners in the region.
The Russian leadership has plans to conduct an operation under a foreign flag in The Black Sea against the background of attacks on the Ukrainian port infrastructure.
This was stated by the spokesman of the US State Department, Matthew Miller, reports Ukrinform.
“We have information that indicates that they (the Russian Federation – Ed.) are obviously preparing an operation under a foreign flag. They threatened ships operating in international waters, after which the attack on the Danube occurred today,” he said.
According to the spokesman, the States will continue consultations with partners in the region regarding alternative ways of exporting grain from Ukraine.
Miller added that an ideal solution that would allow Ukraine to ship the same amount of grain as during the operation of the Black Sea Grain Initiative without renewing sea routes is “simply impossible.”
It will be recalled that earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine stated that the Ukrainian military has enough means, to “drive the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation to Tuapse and Novorossiysk”.
In addition, we previously informed that Russia is launching missile strikes on the port infrastructure of Ukraine in order to deprive the Ukrainian economy of its main source of income.
