Russia rejoins grain deal – Alex Christoforou U2

Alex examines the detail of the Russian return to the grain deal; he offers his opinion as to the wins for Russia and the losses for Russia.

In his opinion, it could be all about keeping Turkey/Erdogan on side. Turkey benefits financially ( as others do ); he becomes the hub for gas and grain. It frees him from  Macron’s attempt to create land transport of the grain to Europe, as he is suggesting. And in the end, when Ukraine breaks the deal, as he is 80% sure they will do, then Erdogan has no more cards to play.
