The United States has condemned Russia’s continued attacks on Ukraine’s grain infrastructure and said that the USA was working to identify alternative options to ensure Ukrainian grain exports.

“The United States … calls for Russia to immediately return to the Black Sea Grain Initiative,” State Department deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel said in a briefing, referring to an agreement that had allowed export of Ukraine grain via the Black Sea. Russia quit the deal on July 17.
