Today, we will discuss the “trilateral initiative” of Bulgaria, Turkey and Romania to clear sea mines in the Black Sea. According to Bulgarian Defense Minister Todor Tagarev, the operation aims to create a security belt for civilian shipping. The importance of this format is driven by the need to secure a corridor for Ukrainian grain exports.

Also, we analyse the strategic impact on the regional security situation and Ukraine’s potential role in facilitating the operation.
