According to Anadolu Agency

Türkiye will send grain and other relevant products to African countries in need if Russian exports are allowed through the Black Sea, the Turkish president said on Friday.

Although not officially part of the deal, it was negotiated that once Russia allows the movement of ships through Ukrainian ports, sanctions on Russian exports will be lifted.

What is stopping Russia from exporting its grain via Turkey or directly to African countries? I'm guessing it might be a lack of ships, despite the lack of sanctions on grain specifically. Basically, is that the case? How much grain did Russia export to Africa last year using 3rd party ships? And how much did they export this year using the same method?

    Apparently most panamxes have been avoiding the Black Sea this year, even after the Ukraine deal.
