The Dutch foreign ministry declined to identify the Russian company or individual involved that is subject to sanctions.

The United Nations first called for the cargo to be released in late October.

“The decision to release the fertilizer was made with the understanding that the United Nations will ensure that it is delivered to the agreed location, in Malawi, and that the Russian company and the sanctioned person will not gain anything from the transaction,” it said. in the announcement of the ministry.

On November 1, Russian news agency TASS reported that Russian fertilizer producer Uralchem-Ural is preparing to donate 240,000 tons of fertilizer blocked in European Union warehouses for humanitarian reasons, with a first shipment destined for Malawi.
