Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been accused by the Russian Foreign Ministry of thwarting the Ukrainian grain corridor initiative along with the UK.

According to Maria Zakharova, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry in the Kremlin, it was Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who thwarted the grain corridor deal in order to add food to the nuclear blackmail.

Posting on her Telegram channel today, Sunday, October 30, Zakharova wrote: “The grain deal was thwarted by Zelenskyy and his terrorists, who are led by British specialists, in order to add food to nuclear blackmail. They have little money and weapons”.

“They need more deaths. The Kyiv regime rests on this hellish throne: money, weapons, death” the diplomat noted, commenting on the accusations made by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba against Russia.

She responded to Kuleba’s claims that Moscow allegedly seeks to transfer 500 thousand tons of grain to other countries, which was most likely stolen from Ukraine in the first place.

Zakharova emphasised that Russia has long been proposing to transfer its own fertilisers free of charge to countries in need. This is something that has been repeatedly discussed between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov she clarified.

“Also, Russia is ready to supply the poorest countries with up to 500,000 tons of its grain free of charge. The Kyiv regime, out of its inherent greed, is greedy to give everything to everyone, even when others give to others”, she concluded, as reported by TASS.
