On July 22, Ukraine and Russia,with Turkey and the United Nations as a mediator, landed on an agreement in Istanbul to resume the export of wheat and other agricultural products from Ukraine to the world, following the Black Sea route.  

Additionally, a special coordination centre including representatives of Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and the United Nations as its staff was opened in Istanbul for ship control and safer navigation.

However, Russia, on October 29, announced that Ukraine had carried out a terrorist attack deploying drones on Russian military and civilian ships in Sevastopol, leading to the suspension of the implementation of the mentioned agreement.

The move from Kremlin triggered global food crisis concerns, for Ukraine is the largest grain exporter. The United Nations, Turkey and Ukraine agreed on a plan to move 16 ships through the humanitarian corridor without Russia on October 30.

Meanwhile, some of the ships made it through the corridor on November 1, but the United Nations, Turkey and Ukraine announced that the corridor would remain inoperable on November 2.
