On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the extension of the Black Sea grain deal for another two months.
The grain deal will be extended for two months, there is a relative result in the negotiations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
"We can confirm that a decision was made by the Russian side to continue this Black Sea deal ... for a period of two months. There is a relatively result in the negotiations with the participation of representatives of Turkey, Ukraine and the UN," Peskov told reporters.
Earlier, Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said that Washington deliberately forgets about the "package" nature of the Black Sea grain deal.
"Moreover, the Americans are again turning the data of deliveries geography upside down. To put it mildly, the statement that Ukrainian grain goes to needy states is not true. Only 2.5% of the 30 million tons of cargo went to indeed hungry. But domestic products are delayed for many months in western harbors, even if we are talking about gratuitous humanitarian flights," the Russian diplomatadded.
