The Black Sea Grain Initiative’s deadline is just days away, but Russian officials say they agreed to extend the agreement by 60 days, saying they are doing it in “good faith.”

However, Kyiv has rejected their push for a reduced renewal, according to Successful Farming. Ukrainian officials tell Reuters extensions are only possible for a minimum of 120 days, so this could mean Russia wants out of the deal altogether.

Since the two sides signed the initial deal last July, millions of tons of grain and other products have been able to leave Black Sea ports.
