7:49am: ‘Green light from Russia’ awaited for Ukraine grain exports

Kyiv is ready to export grain and is awaiting the signal to proceed with the first shipment. But “we don’t know exactly” when this might be able to happen, FRANCE 24’s Gulliver Cragg reports from Odesa.

“There was talk of it happening yesterday; the United Nations expressed hope that it would be possible already yesterday to have the first of these ships leaving port; that did not happen.”

“The Ukrainian side have said they are waiting for the green light from the United Nations and Turkey – who are really just the intermediaries in this discussion. I think it’s a green light from Russia that everybody is waiting for.”
