Ukraine says Russia's Black Sea grain vessel checks are politically motivated

KYIV, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Ukraine said on Monday that Russian inspections that have been creating "significant" delays for the export of Ukrainian food products via the Black Sea were "politically motivated" and a cause for concern.

"We have reason to believe delays in Russia's inspections of the grain initiative’s vessels are politically motivated," the foreign ministry said in a statement. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by Gareth Jones)
