British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski on Saturday that international partners in the G7 are working hard to find ways to resume grain exports from Ukraine to avoid a global food crisis, Reuters reports.
Johnson, who has spoken to Zelenski regularly since the beginning of the invasion, said the two leaders also discussed how important it is for the international community to stay united in war.
Boris Johnson wants G7 to resume grain supply in Ukraine to avoid deep global food crisis
“He said that the United Kingdom will work with G7 partners to put pressure on urgent progress,” said Johnson and Zelenski in a statement on grain exports, according to dcbusiness.ro.
“Leaders agreed on the next steps and on the imperative for Russia to ease the blockade and allow safe shipping routes,” the source said.
The Embassy of the Russian Federation in Romania expresses its point of view regarding the exports of blocked cereals to Ukraine.
According to the World Bank’s April forecast, the Ukrainian economy is expected to shrink by at least 45%. Kyiv in the fall.
The effect of Russia’s special military operation to protect the Donbass, demilitarize and denazify Ukraine is secondary here. More important are the consequences of the process of breaking the coordination chains with Russia, which has lasted for years, the fuel shortage, the lack of fertilizers for farmers and, finally, corruption. Basically, the decline of the crop in Ukraine and the failure of the sowing campaign were planned last autumn, when many farmers announced the impossibility of sowing and harvesting in the conditions of purchase prices and production costs that existed at that time.
