LONDON, August 15 (Reuters)The German Bayer BAYGn.DE said he had decided to continue supplying Russia with essential agricultural inputs, reversing comments made in March that supplies for 2023 would depend on Russia halting its attacks on Ukraine.

In March, Bayer halted all spending in Russia and Belarus unrelated to essentials and threatened to withhold essential supplies like seeds and pesticides if Moscow continued its “unprovoked attacks” on Ukraine.

Its reversal on Monday comes following an agreement signed by Russia, Ukraine, the United Nations and Turkey on July 22 to allow grain exports through three Ukrainian Black Sea ports previously blocked by the Russian fleet of the black Sea.
