EU plans naval mission to accompany Ukrainian grain - El Pais
The EU is considering launching a naval mission to safely export grain from blocked Ukrainian ports.
El Pais shared the details.
"The European Union is discussing the possibility of launching a naval mission to escort cargo ships from Ukraine through the Black Sea. In particular, the export can be realized from Odesa," the statement said.
The EU took this step because of Brussels' fear of famine in countries that depend on wheat blocked by Russia in Ukrainian silos and ports.
The establishment of the mission will be discussed at the EU summit, which will begin on May 29 in Brussels.
One of such mission's problems is to open the passage of European ships to the Odesa port, which is regulated by the Montreux Convention, the implementation of which is monitored by Turkey.
However, the source of the newspaper claims that Turkey can give permission for the passage of European ships, as it is a humanitarian mission.
