On 29 October, Russia announced that it was suspending its participation in the implementation of the "grain deal" due to the alleged "attack on the Black Sea Fleet ships" in Sevastopol Bay and civilian vessels involved in ensuring the security of the grain corridor.
The UN said that Russia's suspension of participation in the "grain deal" does not mean that it is no longer valid. Therefore, UN inspectors will continue to check ships transporting grain from Ukrainian ports.
On 1 November, three vessels with Ukrainian grain left the seaports of Odesa Region, and on 31 October - 12.
