The possibility of selling Ukrainian grain through Latvian ports was discussed by Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solsky with his Latvian colleague Kaspars Gerhards.
As reported on the website of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine, Solsky visited the Riga, Ventspils free ports and the special economic zone of the city of Liepaja.
At the meeting, the ministers agreed on Latvia’s assistance in selling our grain, which was stuck due to the blocking of the sea by the Russian occupiers. In addition, Solsky met with representatives of local governments, representatives of Latvian port administrations, grain terminal operators, and grain trading companies.
Earlier, Latvian President Egils Levis, during a meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky, spoke about Latvia’s readiness to help Ukraine export grain.
Good. The news here is filled with reports about an expected food shortage. Ukraine is after all, one of the world’s biggest exporters of wheat and other grains like barley.
