To further extend the grain deal, Russia requires the Rosselkhoznadzor to connect to the SWIFT system of international financial transactions with the help of a Turkish bank. The European Union has already refused to comply with this requirement, but the Kremlin said that options equivalent to unlocking SWIFT are being considered.

The current deal is valid until July 17, after which Russia will stop its implementation if its requirements are not met.

In Antalya, 42 ships were fined more than 91 million liras

The Antalya Metropolitan Municipality intervened in the situation with ships polluting the sea. The municipality monitors vessels using the Electronic Vessel Inspection System (EGDS), which has been implemented to prevent marine pollution. As part of the program, PTZ cameras with a 40x optical zoom function, 20 thermal imaging cameras with an automatic identification system, as well as a ground radar with a range of 90 miles were installed at 20 different points. Thanks to cameras that can take clear and close-up pictures, ships polluting the seas are detected instantly. Inspection boats take samples at the place where a vessel polluting the sea is found. According to the results of analyses and recordings from cameras, administrative sanctions are imposed on vessels found to be polluted by the sea. With the help of the EGDS, which was put into operation on July 5, 2023, 42 ships polluting the sea were detected. As a result, 91 million 766 thousand liras of administrative fines were imposed. The income received by the metropolitan municipality from fines is used in environmental projects.
