President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky discussed the intensification of work on security guarantees for Ukraine with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“Talked with Boris Johnson. Told about the situation on the front. Received confirmation of a new enhanced defense support package for Ukraine. Raised the issue of intensifying work on security guarantees. Jointly with Great Britain, we’re looking for ways to avoid the food crisis & unblock ports,” Zelensky posted on Twitter.
As reported, Russia’s blockade of Ukrainian seaports hampers the deliveries of 7 million tonnes of wheat, 14 million tonnes of corn grain, 3 million tonnes of sunflower oil, and 3 million tonnes of sunflower meal to the world market. This has already led to record world market price spikes and will inevitably result in a global food crisis and rising inflation.
