The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food First Deputy Minister Taras Vysotskyi at a press conference, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“We have received confirmation from international partners about the additional supply of large sacks designed to hold 200,000 tonnes each, as well as loading and unloading equipment. Approximately, it is 10-15 million tonnes of grain additionally. In August, we are planning to launch the distribution procedure,” Vysotskyi told.
In his words, such equipment numbers will be enough to store this year’s yield at the current rate of exports. Sacks can be used to store grain for 12-17 months.
A reminder that Ukraine expects to harvest about 52 million tonnes of grain crops and 13-15 million tonnes of oilseed crops in 2022.
