The Kremlin has no information about the detention of a ship with grain by Turkey, which arrived from Berdyansk, Zaporozhye region, said the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, RBC correspondent reports.
“Unfortunately, we do not have Kremlin this information. I think that it makes sense to ask the Ministry of Transport or the Foreign Ministry, — said Peskov.
He drew attention to the fact that the Turkish side, upon detention, if any, must provide information through the Russian embassy or consulate general.
The fact that Ukraine asked Turkey to arrest a ship with 7 thousand tons of grain that left the port of Berdyansk became known on July 1. The city has been under Russian control since the end of February. Reuters wrote that such a request was sent by the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office, Ukrainian Ambassador Vasily Bodnar also announced a request from Kyiv to take action against the vessel.
