The Russian Defense Ministry says movement of ships along Black Sea security corridor is unacceptable, but stresses Russia is suspending, not withdrawing from, the Black Sea initiative.
Ukraine says it will press on with the export deal despite Russia’s suspension of the deal.
What is the difference between suspension and withdrawal? Suspension: stop and don’t start again until we tell you. Withdrawal: I am quitting; you can do what you want. Big difference.
Russia warned the world that safe passage of ships loaded with Ukrainian grain can no longer be guaranteed. Does that mean the ships can sail with the normal risk or does it mean Russia may attack and/or sink Ukrainian grain ships?
