Ukraine grain shipments offer hope, not fix to food crisis


Drought and high fertilizer costs have kept grain prices more than 50% higher than early 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the war, half of the grain the WFP purchased for distribution came from Ukraine. Under the deal, some — not all — of the food exported will go to countries experiencing food insecurity. After Russia invaded Ukraine, Somalia and other African countries turned to non-traditional grain partners like India, Turkey and Brazil, but at higher prices. The WFP said this week that it’s planning to buy, load and ship 30,000 tons of wheat out of Ukraine on a U.N.-chartered vessel.
