Dmytro Kuleba: Ukraine and partners are working together to overcome the global food crisis brought on by Russia's aggression and blockade
17 May 2022 09:29

"The only reasons for the restrictions on Ukrainian food exports is the Russian aggression against our country and its illegal blockade of Ukrainian seaports. Russia is threatening world food security by its criminal actions. 

Despite the difficult circumstances, Ukraine is making every effort to meet its contractual obligations and supply food to global consumers, particularly through the use of the EU infrastructure" Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine's Foreign Minister, emphasized.


The Minister informed that Ukraine has already agreed with the EU countries to develop alternative ways to supply Ukrainian food exports to global markets.


"Ukraine, the EU, the US, Canada, and the UK are cooperating to avoid a global food crisis triggered by Russian aggression and blockade. This is a challenging task, but we're working on it" he remarked.


We recall that on May 12, EU Commissioner for Transport Adina Velyan presented in Brussels a "Solidarity Lanes" action plan designed to assist Ukrainian food exports.


20 million tons of grain will be transported from Ukraine via EU infrastructure in less than three months under this project.


The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has previously warned consumer countries that grain consignments sold by Russia might contain partially or in full stolen grain seized as a result of looting by Russian troops. Numerous testimonies from Ukrainian farmers and documented evidence serve as proof of Russia's plunder of Ukrainian grain.
