Britain: Russia’s proposal was rejected

British Defense Minister Ben Wallace rejected the idea of ​​weakening sanctions in exchange for the withdrawal of Russian blockade from Ukrainian ports for the export of crop. This is reported by Sky News.

At a meeting with his Spanish colleague Margarita Robbles Wallace, said Russia should “act correctly.”

At the same time, he welcomed the proposal to other Black Sea countries, such as Turkey, to accompany the parties of Ukrainian grain.

Ukraine expects that the crop of this year will be about 70% of last year, since some fields are now under the control of Russia or mined.

Recall, on May 25, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that they would have been ready to provide a humanitarian corridor for the export of Ukrainian crop through the Black Sea – in exchange for relieving sanctions and “clearing Ukraine” of the Black Sea, which in the first month of full -scale invasion was mined by Russia itself .
