The UN said that the Ukrainian granaries are full.
The UN calls for opening ports in the Odessa region so that Ukrainian products can be freely delivered around the world.
This was stated by the Executive Director of the UN World Food Program David Beasley on Twitter .
“Ukrainian granaries are full. At the same time, 44 million people around the world are marching to starvation. We have little time, and the cost of inaction will be higher than anyone can imagine,” he said.
Beasley noted that if the ports in the Odessa region did not open immediately, two things would happen.
“Firstly, we will have a collapse of agriculture throughout Ukraine. Secondly, famine is looming around the world. Ports must be reopened, and this must happen now,” he explained.
As UNIAN reported earlier, according to the UN World Food Program, almost 4.5 million tons of grain are blocked in Ukrainian ports through closed sea lanes amid a full-scale Russian military invasion.
The Ukrainian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs proposes to apply to international organizations, such as Turkey, with a proposal to jointly organize a corridor for the export of grain blocked in ports.
