The President of Ukraine came up with a new appeal to the European Union states asking them to ban visas for Russian citizens.

"Latvia has officially recognized Russia as a terrorist state. We want the whole world to do the same. After everything the invaders did in Ukraine, there can be only one attitude towards Russia - as a terrorist state. And, by the way, from this point of view you should determine the attitude towards the citizens of Russia. I thank the Czech Republic, the Baltic States and other European countries that brought the issue of visas for citizens of a terrorist state to the European Union on an official level," said Volodymyr Zelenski.

At the same time, the Turkish Ministry of Defence announced that the export of grain continues. Two ships carrying sunflower seeds and corn left Ukrainian ports. One ship is carrying 12,000 tons of corn, and the other left the port with 3,000 tons of sunflower seeds.
