Ukraine has established routes for exporting grain through Poland and Romania
Ukraine has established two routes through Poland and Romania to export grain and avert a global food crisis, although bottlenecks have slowed the supply chain, Kyiv’s deputy foreign minister said. Dmytro Senik said global food security was at risk because Russia’s invasion of Ukraine had halted Kyiv’s Black Sea grain exports, causing widespread shortages and soaring prices.
He did not say how much grain has already been moved or will be moved along these routes. However, it is known that Ukraine is negotiating with the Baltic states on the creation of the third corridor for food exports.
Ukraine is the fourth largest exporter of grain in the world. As Russia blocks Ukrainian ports, 23.5 million tons of grain and oilseeds remain in Ukraine.
