Putin will Only Abide by the Grain Deal if Ukraine Starts Sinking the Russian Ships Blockading Grain Exports in the Black Sea
Only sunken Russian Navy ships, which are actively engaged in the blockading of Ukrainian ports, will Putin abide by the grain agreement he just insisted that Russia “was cheated” on.
Negotiating with Putin is not possible, because Putin cannot be trusted.
Only when he is in a position of weakness, after a show of strength, will he even begin to think about complying with the grain deal he agreed to — especially since he is threatening to unilaterally impose new terms and abandon the deal by stopping grain exports with his fleet.
Tens of millions of people will starve if Putin is allowed to blockade Ukrainian grain exports.
