This issue was first discussed in Kyiv last week at a meeting of
Russia’s Deputy Agriculture Minister Ilya Shestakov and his Ukrainian
counterpart Oleksandr Sen, the Russian Agriculture Ministry’s press
service reported.

The Black Sea grain pool is designed as a coordinating agency for the
exchange of information in order to ensure a competitive advantage for
Russia and Ukraine on the world grain market.

“The establishment of the council will also help increase the total
production of cereal crops in the member countries, strengthen and

The parties decided to discuss at the next meeting of the
