Martin Griffiths

The settlement of possible incidents during the export of grain from Ukrainian ports under the signed agreement will be handled by a joint coordination center, RIA Novosti reported. UN Assistant Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths. He will find out which side violated the agreements and take action.

“There will be representatives of Ukraine, Russia and Turkey in the joint coordination center, and we— UN. And, as an absolutely standard practice suggests, when there are parties to a conflict, you monitor violations of agreements. For example, if you open fire, you collect two sides and evaluate & mdash; who did what, who is to blame, & mdash; he explained.

After that, the parties agree on the adoption of “corrective measures”; in order to stop the fighting, and subsequently— prevent possible recurrence of incidents. “So if one of the parties is responsible for attacking a ship that is going through these routes, in violation of the agreement that was signed today, we want to know why, what was the reason,” emphasized Griffiths.

“There is no enforcement mechanism. This is a voluntary agreement. This is not a court,— the Deputy Secretary General continued.— The coercion, if you like, comes from publicity, publicity by the joint coordinating committee of violations on one side or another. This is standard practice.

Agreement on the “grain corridor” was signed the day before in Istanbul. Their agreements were first recorded by Ukraine and Turkey with the evidence of the UN, and then by Russia and Turkey. Export will be carried out from the ports of Odessa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny along a safe corridor in the Black Sea. The military will not escort merchant ships. At the entrance and exit to the Black Sea, ships will be inspected to exclude the transport of weapons and ammunition.

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov stated that the signing of the agreement is necessary to overcome the general food crisis.
