MOSCOW. June 3 (Interfax) - Russia is almost through with the demining of the Azov seaports of Berdyansk and Mariupol, President Vladimir Putin said.

"Yes, the Azov Sea ports - Berdyansk, Mariupol - are under our control, we are ready to ensure trouble-free export, of Ukrainian grain included, through those ports. Go ahead," Putin said in an interview with the Rossiya-1 channel's Moscow.Kremlin.Putin host Pavel Zarubin.
