Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has hinted that Russia will likely extend the Black Sea grain deal with Ukraine despite an earlier denial from the Kremlin that the agreement agreed in July last year would be extended.

The grain deal has allowed for the export of food and fertilizer from Ukraine to parts of the global south which are threatened with hunger.

President Erdogan’s handling of the deal, which was brokered by Turkey, has been hailed as an example of how to take on Putin.

According to the Kremlin, Russia has made no formal announcements regarding the extension of the grain deal.

The accord provides for the safe transfer of Ukrainian agricultural exports from blockaded ports.

It has been renewed three times since its commencement, but it will expire in three days.

Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesperson released a statement denying any agreement in response to President Erdogan’s declaration that he and Vladimir Putin were in agreement on extending the accord.

Erdogan’s remarks have been taken as hinting that an agreement to renew the accord had already been reached.
