African leaders are leaving two days of meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin with little to show in response to their requests to resume a deal that kept grain flowing from Ukraine… and to find a way to end the war there.

During a press conference, Putin said terminating the grain deal this month caused a rise in grain prices that benefits Russian companies, and Moscow would share some of those revenues with quote “the poorest nations.”

Putin also said Russia would analyze the African leaders’ peace proposal for Ukraine.

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is condemning Russia for its weaponization of food through the bombing of Ukraine’s export infrastructure, impacting the Black Sea grain deal.

Russia’s military has been destroying grain stocks in the Ukrainian port city of Odesa, from where the grain was being shipped worldwide.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy vows that his country will continue to battle Russia and will emerge victorious.
