The world has no alternative to Ukrainian agricultural products
Countries importing agricultural products — primarily the Middle East and Africa — will not be able to do without exporting supplies of Ukrainian agricultural products. It is physically impossible to replace its volumes with supplies from Russia or any other country. — Taras Vysotskyi, Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.
We supplied 10% of world wheat exports, more than 15-20% of barley, and more than 50% of sunflower oil. On average, 50 million tonnes of agricultural products were exported from Ukraine. In record years, this figure even reached 65 million tonnes. Today there is no way to find an alternative to such volumes and replace our products. It is physically impossible to do this even in the next three to five years,” Vysotskyi emphasized.
