Russian dictator Vladimir Putin's words that he will not use trade routes to attack the Ukrainian city of Odesa if its port is cleared of mines to resume grain exports are "empty," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted on June 6.

"Putin says he will not use trade routes to attack Odesa. This is the same Putin who told German Chancellor Scholz and French President Macron he would not attack Ukraine – days before launching a full-scale invasion of our country," Kuleba tweeted.

"We cannot trust Putin, his words are empty."

On June 3, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin said that there was no problem with the export of grain from Ukraine: it could be exported in five different ways, he said.

Putin also said that Russia was ready to ensure the safe export of grain through the Russian-controlled Ukrainian ports.

When Western countries said that Russia was preventing the export of grain from Ukraine, Putin called it a "bluff."

Russia is deliberately blocking Ukrainian ports and sea routes in the Black Sea for the export of grain from Ukraine, as well as preventing the export by rail by launching missile attacks on elevators and railway infrastructure.

The Kremlin seeks to provoke famine in African countries, which will lead to a wave of migration to Europe, hoping in this way to put pressure on the EU. Kremlin officials demanded the lifting of sanctions imposed on Russia in response to the war in Ukraine in exchange for unblocking Ukrainian ports.
