A delegation from the Turkish Ministry of Defense held talks in Moscow on Wednesday to unblock the export of Ukrainian grain by sea.

This was reported by “Yevropeyska Pravda” ("European Truth") with reference to Milliyet.

According to the Turkish Ministry of Defense, the meeting took place in a "constructive and very positive atmosphere", and its participants stated that they had reached an agreement on holding quadripartite talks with Ukraine and the UN.

Russia and Turkey also discussed the removal of commercial ships with cargo from blocked Ukrainian ports and the safe return of Turkish planes from the Boryspil airport.

As for the quadripartite meeting of representatives of Kyiv, Moscow, Ankara, and the UN, it is supposed to take place "in the coming weeks".

The Turkish side also noted that the talks resulted in the departure of the first Turkish ship – "Azov Concord" – from the port occupied by Russian troops in Mariupol, as already reported by Russian media.

It will be recalled that Russia is blocking the Black Sea, which is why Ukraine cannot export its food by sea. It also accuses the West of raising food prices through sanctions against the country.
