Ukraine said Wednesday it would not demine waters around the Black Sea port of Odessa to allow for grain to be exported, citing the threat of Russian attacks on the city.
“The moment we clear access to the port of Odessa, the Russian fleet will be there,” spokesman for the regional administration Sergiy Bratchuk said in a video statement on social media.
He said that Russia “dreams of parachuting troops” into the city and that Moscow’s army “wants to attack” Odessa.
The Turkish and Russian foreign ministers were meeting in Ankara Wednesday to discuss the creation of security corridor to ship Ukrainian grain stuck in the war-torn country’s ports due to a Russian blockade.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow was ready to facilitate the safe passage of Ukrainian grain.
Bratchuk said before the announcement that any exports from Odessa must be escorted “by NATO countries”.
Turkey has offered its services to accompany maritime convoys from Ukrainian ports.
Ukraine before the war was the world’s fourth largest exporter of wheat and supplied half of the world’s trade in sunflower seeds and oil.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned this week that the amount of grain blocked by the war could triple within several months.

Soros wants the world to starve.
Ukraine is trying to starve Africa to further its war aims.
Using starvation for leverage. 40 Billion will buy a lot of mines.
They were winning the ground war all along, but they were getting the cr@p beat out of them in the Media war.
Now they're starting to win the Media war, with the KievKlowns and their globalist puppeteers making decisions like this.
Go give Soros another hummer you globalist depopulation psychopath.
Do I have to say it?
They know that Russia wants Odessa to finish the “special military operaion” and without port access, Ukraine is finished.
I don’t follow the link between mines in the sea and “parachuting troops”. If Russia wants to parachute troops in, they don’t need the seas clear of mines.
No you don’t l know
Just take the grain to Russia and ship it from there. China and India are not idiots. They’ll buy it cheap and sell it to Europe for a nice profit.
Maybe they can’t. It’s a lot harder to find and remove mines than to lay them.
Because of inflation, it’s now 12% for the Big Guy.
Yep Odessa is set and match.
You’d have to be able to supply and support any troops you dropped in, and that would require ships using the port. Mining the port means that even if an airborne op seized the port facility itself, it would be unusable.
I think you may have started something here.
“Just take the grain to Russia and ship it from there. China and India are not idiots. They’ll buy it cheap and sell it to Europe for a nice profit”.
India is doing just that with Russian oil. They’re making huge profits.
It’s against international law.
I put scare quotes because they are clearly obeying someone off stage. Maybe the same folks who control Biden?
Or perhaps they are just guarding against a Russian amphibious invasion.
