Military and any other ships of Russia or Ukraine do not have the right to approach the ships of the “grain corridor” and take any part in this humanitarian mission.
Martin Griffiths, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, stated this at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.
“I want to clearly say that no military, air, sea vessels, assets participated in supporting the initiative. They are not needed. And, in fact, they are forbidden to come closer than 10 nautical miles to cargo ships according to the procedures that were agreed upon by all parties “, he explained.
According to Griffiths, no civilian ships were in the corridor on the night of 29 October.
On October 29, Russia announced its withdrawal from the “grain deal” after the attack on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet in the Sevastopol Bay.

On October 30, President Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to Russian claims that the drones that attacked the Black Sea Fleet ships in Sevastopol on October 29 were launched from a civilian ship that was used as part of the “grain agreement” and stressed that Russia is putting the world on the brink of a food crisis.
