Quote: "Indonesia is one of the largest importers of grain from Ukraine, and the blockade of Ukrainian ports was the main focus of the talks between the presidents [of Indonesia and Ukraine - ed.] in Kyiv.
Russia bears full responsibility for disrupting the export [of Ukrainian grain - ed.] to Indonesia, as well as to other parts of the world. And Russia will be held responsible for the food crisis that could unfold unless Ukrainian ports are urgently de-blockaded.
This is what Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed in detail with Joko Widodo [President of the Republic of Indonesia - ed.].
As for any sort of messages, if the president of Ukraine wants to address someone, he does so publicly, in his daily addresses."
Previously: Following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on 30 June, Indonesian President Joko Widodo claimed that he had relayed a message from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to Putin.
On 29 June, the president of Indonesia arrived in Ukraine; he visited the city of Irpin, which was devastated by the Russian occupying forces.
The Indonesian president said that he had a message for Zelenskyy and that he would be meeting with the Russian president very soon.
Widodo personally invited Zelenskyy to attend the G20 summit in Bali in November. In response, Zelenskyy said that whether he takes part will depend on the security situation in Ukraine and on which other countries are invited to take part in the summit.
