Deputy Prime Minister Abramchenko: the West understood that rejection of Russian fertilizers would end badly
Unfriendly states have begun to understand that rejection of Russian mineral fertilizers will end badly, the West is already softening its rhetoric to resume trade, Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“You know, on mineral fertilizers, as a result of last year, my observations are as follows: unfriendly states began to understand that you can not give up mineral fertilizers, including Russian fertilizers, it will end badly. There have already been some changes in the official position of unfriendly countries in order to resume such trade, the rhetoric is softening,” she noted.
The grain deal signed last July 22 by representatives of Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Nations, which was automatically extended in November, involved the export of Ukrainian grain, food and fertilizers via the Black Sea from three ports, including Odessa. The deal itself was part of a package deal that included the unblocking of Russian food and fertilizer exports.
