Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see that skirmish as the last straw.

I've comment on that ... de facto...120-day cease fire for the sake of starving Africans since tri-lateral negotiation started in June. Which is to say, agreement dragged on to end July, not only because UA wouldn't meet, but RU wanted G7 concessions on PI shipping and port sanctions to move its MY 2022/2023 harvest. Although G7 insisted it had imposed no RU grain or fertilizer commodity sanctions on buyers, the RU logistics piece of distribution slipped under incessant UA "blockade," bloated yield agitprop, US State red-baiting AU55, and Guterres equivocation.

The JCC only measures UA tonnes shipped, as if indeed no other trade exists.

I don't know exactly how RU managed it, but word on the trades' grape vine is RU has delivered 8M mt/40M mt harvested for export—by-passing Baltic and Black Seas— so far.
