Tuesday’s announcement on food security highlights another front in Putin’s war.
Russian warships are blockading Ukraine’s Black Sea ports, which account for almost all of the country’s grain and wheat exports.
The result has been a surge in food prices around the world and warnings that as many as 47 million people face acute hunger this year.
David Miliband, International Rescue Committee president, said recently: ‘Ukraine has long been the bread basket not just for its neighbors in the region or for Europe, but for the world.
‘Blockades on ports in the Black Sea are holding thousands of tons of wheat, grain and fertilizer hostage – with devastating consequences for millions already caught in growing hunger crises worldwide. These blockades must be lifted immediately.’
