On Thursday, the Kremlin reiterated its claim that Russia did not steal grain from Ukraine, amid claims by Turkey that it was investigating allegations of theft from Kiev and would not allow grain theft in the country.

Asked about Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s comments that Ankara investigated the Ukrainian allegations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “You should ask the Foreign Ministry. No grain.”
