It’s been two weeks since Russia backed out of the Black Sea Grain Deal, stopping any grain movement out of ports there. Ukrainian officials are now warning that civilian vessels could be in danger.

Representatives for the Ukrainian President say Russian warships threaten civilians in the Black Sea and claim those threats violate all norms of international maritime law.

Officials in Ukraine say Russia’s hostility is to solidify its importance as a global grain supplier. Several countries have come together to get grains out of the country through solidarity lanes via rail and roads.
