The United Nations , the Republic of Turkey , Ukraine , and Russia have committed to a plan for resuming Ukrainian exports through the Black Sea and getting millions of tons of Ukrainian grain to those who need it around the world . The United States welcomes this deal and commends UN Secretary - General Guterres and Turkish President Erdoğan for their committed diplomatic efforts to mediate these discussions . Today’s UN - brokered deal is a positive step towards addressing the far - reaching impacts of Russia’s war . The international community must now hold Russia accountable for this deal , ending its effective blockade of Ukraine’s ports and ensuring Ukrainian agricultural goods — including grain , oilseeds , and sunflower oil — reach world markets . Russia has weaponized food since the beginning of this crisis . An end to Russia’s blockade of Ukraine’s agricultural exports through the Black Sea is , therefore , only one of the many steps Russia needs to take to ensure that food from Ukraine makes it to global markets . Global food security will remain at risk for as long as Russia continues its unjustified and brutal aggression against Ukraine . The world’s hungry cannot wait , and we expect the implementation of today’s deal to commence swiftly and proceed without interruption or interference .
