The Russian delegation that has been participating in the inspections of ships carrying Ukrainian grain since the beginning of August in Constantinople will withdraw “for an unspecified period of time”, the Joint Coordination Center (JCC), responsible for overseeing the international agreement signed in the summer, announced on Sunday evening. NATO has called on Moscow to immediately renew the agreement to export grain from Ukrainian Black Sea ports amid the global food crisis.

Russia’s Defence Ministry says 16 drones attacked its fleet near Sevastopol in the early hours of Saturday morning and that British “specialists” from the Royal Navy helped coordinate what it calls a “terrorist attack.” Russia claims the unmanned surface vehicles that attacked its fleet in the Black Sea used the “safe corridor” intended to transport the grain and that one of them may have been launched from a “civilian ship”.

Russia’s Defence Ministry said it had recovered and analyzed the wreckage of the unmanned aircraft used in the attack on Black Sea Fleet ships in Crimea on Saturday.
