Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov: UN Secretary General is prolonging the food crisis with his actions

Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) António Guterres is prolonging the food crisis. This statement was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergei Lavrovwrites TASS.

In particular, he accused the UN Secretary General of not allowing grain to be sent faster. The head of the department also noted that the Russian side provided the organization with its vision of resolving the situation. However, he added, Russia is alarmed by the organization’s slow response to proposals on such an urgent issue. “I do not rule out that the UN Secretariat is also experiencing a strong impact from those who want to exercise external management of the Organization,” Lavrov admitted.

The foreign minister also pointed out that Guterres is trying to negotiate on Ukrainian grain, not taking into account the corridors announced daily by the Russian side.

Formerly Milliyet newspaper reportedthat next week in Istanbul negotiations between Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and UN representatives on the problem of exporting grain from Ukrainian territory may take place. It was also reported that a delegation from the Turkish Ministry of Defense plans to come to Moscow to discuss the issue this week.
