Ukraine: Russia using ‘false pretext’ to pull out of grain deal

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine criticizes Russia’s decision to pull out of a grain shipment deal, saying that Moscow’s blaming a drone attack was a “false pretext.”

“Moscow is using a false pretext to block the grain corridor that ensures food security for millions of people. I call on all states to demand that Russia stop its hunger games and recommit to fulfilling its obligations,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba says on Twitter.
