Ukraine will not sign a direct agreement with Russia as part of the grain export negotiations, but only with Turkey and the UN.
This was reported by Mikhail Podolyak, advisor to the head of the Office of the President, in Twitter.
"Ukraine is not signing any documents with Russia. We sign a treaty with Turkey and the UN and take obligations to them. Russia is signing a mirror agreement with Turkey and the UN," he explained.
According to Podolyak, Russian ships will not accompany vessels with grain, and there will be no representatives of the Russian Federation in Ukrainian ports. In case of provocations - immediate response from the military.
Also all the vessels will be checked by joint groups in Turkish waters, if necessary.
The agreement will be signed on the Ukrainian side by Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov and on the Russian side by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
