The Italian press is wondering what is the role of Roman Abramovich, who was present during the signing of the agreement to unblock the shipment of grain from Ukrainian ports?
As you know, the agreement was signed separately between Turkey with the UN and Ukraine, Turkey with the UN and Russia, without direct agreements between Kyiv and Moscow, agency reports Ansa.
Zelensky has already stated that the deblockade of seaports will bring $ 10 billion only for the grain of the old crop. In the meantime, farmers have begun harvesting a new crop, which, at current prices, could bring in more than $20 billion, even though no more than 80% of last year’s area was sown, and Ukrainian farmers experienced a serious shortage of fuel and fertilizers.
That is, the agreement could bring in more than $30 billion by the end of the year, which is a significant relief for respected Western partners who would otherwise be forced to get these tens of billions out of their pockets.
But again, the role of Roman Abramovich in the grain agreement is very interesting, and in which capacity he attended the official international event. As I understand it, because Abramovich was again able to persuade the Russian authorities to agree to another agreement with respected Western partners, Zelensky will again start calling Biden and the company with requests to remove the respected Russian oligarch from the sanctions lists and allow them to continue to enjoy the benefits of Western civilization for the money taken out From Russia.
Do you think Abramovich will be allowed to return to his beloved London mansion and sail on one of the most expensive yachts in the world to European and American resorts? Or will they offer him something else to bargain with Russia more substantial than the export of grain from Ukraine for 30 billion dollars?
