Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected to embark on a one-day visit to Russia on August 5. According to the Turkish presidency, Erdogan will meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in the coastal city of Sochi. The Turkey President's visit comes in the backdrop of the Russian shelling of Ukraine's Odessa port, just a day after the historic grain corridor agreement was signed on July 22 in Istanbul. Earlier on July 26, Erdogan expressed concern over Russia's actions and asked both warring sides to follow through on their commitments and adhere to their agreements regarding the export of Ukrainian grains.
Meanwhile, on July 24, the Turkish Defence Ministry promised to ensure speedy and safe grain exports from Ukraine via the Black Sea. Defence Minister Hulusi Akar stated that Ankara will continue to uphold its commitment and fulfil the obligations laid out in the grain agreement. Since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, Turkey has continued to serve as the primary mediator between the two warring sides.
