Ukrainian envoy speaks on Turkey detention of Russian ship

The Ukrainian ambassador Vasyl Bodnar speaks exclusively with Al Jazeera about Turkey’s detention of a ship which bore a Russian flag. Ukraine says the Zhibek Zholy ship was carrying stolen Ukrainian grain from the Russian-occupied port of Berdyansk.

Bodnar announced the seizure of the cargo ship on state TV.

About 25 million tonnes of grain from last year’s harvest are trapped inside Ukraine.
