Russia threatens to break the “grain deal”

First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said that in response to the UN investigation into the use of Iranian drones by Russia, Moscow may “reconsider cooperation” with the UN, including not extending the “grain deal”.

It is reported by “ProAgro Group” with reference to Ukrinform.

This statement was made following a closed meeting of the UN Security Council, during which Iran was accused of supplying drones to Russia. Polyansky said that Russia is still “not convinced” of the need to extend the grain deal, and noted that the main issue remains “the export of Russian fertilizers and food.”

According to Polyansky, Moscow hopes that the UN Secretariat and the UN Secretary General will refrain from participating in any investigations into Iranian drones, which the Russian diplomat called “illegal”, a violation of the UN Security Council decision, going beyond the technical mandate of the UN. Otherwise, Russia will reconsider cooperation with the UN. “We do not want this, but there will be no other choice,” Polyansky said about the seriousness of the threat.

As you know, this week Ukraine invited UN experts to check the downed drones. Twice a year, Guterres reports to the Security Council on the implementation of the 2015 resolution. It is reported that information about Russia’s use of drones in Ukraine is likely to be included in the December report of the Secretary General.
