The agreements on the export of food from Ukraine were concluded on July 22 for a period of 120 days. One of the deals regulating grain exports from the Kyiv-controlled ports of Odessa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny runs until Saturday, November 19, while the Istanbul-based Joint Coordination Center (JCC) set up by Russia on UN, Ukraine and Turkey is designed for vessel inspections to prevent arms smuggling or any challenges. The latter was signed by Russia, Turkey and the UN and separately by Ukraine, Turkey and the UN.

Also, Russia and the UN signed a memorandum under which the international organization is committed to lifting restrictions on exports of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers to world markets.
