Why the planet could starve without Ukrainian food | Ep. 107

June 7, 2022

400 million people around the world depend on food which comes from Ukraine. Russia has not only attacked Ukraine and killed tens of thousands of civilians, but has also blocked Ukrainian sea ports, through which the country exports 90 million tons of food annually. How is this Russian blockade threatening a global food crisis, and what should be done about it? We discuss these topics in our new episode of the Explaining Ukraine podcast. Hosts: Volodymyr Yermolenko, chief editor of UkraineWorld.org, and Kostiantyn Romashko, head of the analytics department of Internews Ukraine. UkraineWorld is brought to you by Internews Ukraine.
