FM Kuleba: Ukraine working on UN-led operation to export food

Ukrinform
Ukraine is working on an international UN-led operation with navies of partners ensuring a safe trade for Ukrainian food exports.

“Russia plays hunger games with the world by blocking Ukrainian food exports with one hand and trying to shift the blame on Ukraine with the other. Ukraine is working on an international UN-led operation with navies of partners ensuring a safe trade route with no security risks,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba posted on Twitter.

Earlier, President Zelensky stated that the invaders had stolen at least half a million tonnes of grain in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and were looking for ways to sell it illegally.

Due to the blockade of Ukrainian seaports, 7 million tonnes of wheat, 14 million tonnes of corn grain, 3 million tonnes of sunflower oil, and 3 million tonnes of sunflower meal are unable to reach the global market. This has already led to a record rise in global market prices and will inevitably result in a global food crisis and rising inflation.
