A future food crisis will have an impact on Europe, Asia, Africa, says Ukrainian president

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has stated that owing to Russia’s blockade of its Black Sea ports, Ukraine may lose tens of millions of tons of grain, resulting in a food catastrophe that will affect Europe, Asia, and Africa.
In a televised interview, Zelensky stated that Russia does not allow ships to enter or depart the Black Sea because it purposely halts our country’s economy.

It should be noted that Ukraine is a significant supplier of grains and other food goods, as well as minerals.
