Ukraine starts spring sowing campaign in 20 regions

Ukrainian farmers have started the sowing of spring crops in 20 regions.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said this in a video address, Ukrinform reports.

"The sowing campaign has already started in 20 regions of Ukraine. This is really good news, because on the same day last year, the sowing campaign began in only 15 regions," Shmyhal said.

According to available data, the projected area of sowing is 6 million hectares of land. This is 80% of the area sown last year.

“Today, our farmers are no less courageous and loyal to their front. As the future food security of the country and the world depends on them. We thank them for their courage and dedication to their work,” Shmyhal said.

The head of government added that due to the state order for social products, the food industry would expand new capacities and hire new workers, in particular this relates to 300 such enterprises.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying key infrastructure facilities, conducting massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.

Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced.
