Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has warned that people trading stolen Ukrainian grain will be held to account, APA reports citing Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

Russia has staged a blockade along the Black Sea coast since its invasion of Ukraine, preventing the export of millions of tonnes of grain. Ukraine has accused Russian forces of stealing several hundred thousand tonnes of grain.

Commenting on reports that a Russian vessel with stolen Ukrainian grain has moored in Syria, Kuleba called Russia a "triple criminal".

"It has bombed Syria, occupied a part of Ukraine, and is now selling stolen Ukrainian grain to Syria," he was quoted as saying.

"We will do everything to make your life as difficult as possible," his warning continued.

Earlier Russia's President Putin said his country would increase exports thanks to a good harvest.

The disruption to supply chains caused by the war has contributed to increasing prices around the world.
