Zelensky alleged that Russia violated the agreement with UN and Turkiye.
“I’ll trust that the partners will be able to calm down Russia’s rhetorics. On our side, we continue with the grain initiative because we understand what we offer the world. We offer stability on the food market.”
Czech PM and Zelensky also signed a joint declaration on Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration. Zelensky said it was first time such a document was agreed on.
