Russia and Ukraine sign a deal to resume exports of Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea. Millions of tons of wheat have been stuck in the war-torn nation. The agreement was signed in the Turkish city of Istanbul and was brokered by the government in Ankara. Russian and Ukrainian officials sat at separate tables to sign the documents.

Ukraine is one of the world's biggest wheat exporters. Russian forces have been blocking the Black Sea, where the grain silos are located. The deal is significant for global food supplies, but also as it's the first major agreement between the two sides since Moscow launched it's unprovoked onslaught on Feb. 24.

Russia will be closely watched to make sure it upholds its side of the agreement. Moscow, which blames Ukraine for laying the mines, is also expected to restart its own grain exports in the Black Sea. Turkish officials are expected to inspect the shipments to rule out any weapons smuggling.

Guterres: "We are proud to be instrumental in an initiative that will play a major role in solving global food crisis" Ukraine is one of the world's top agricultural producers and exporters. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, it is normally the top producer of sunflower meal, oil, and seed.
