Food crisis due to problems with grain exports

Polish, Bulgarian, Romanian and French farmers rebelled over agricultural products supplied under the grain deal. Ukrainian grain turned out to be much cheaper than European grain, as a result of which local producers suffered.

According to the estimates of the Polish People’s Party, which represents the interests of local peasants, about a third of all grain was imported to Poland from Ukraine, Izvestia writes. It is noted that the country was not affected by a serious drought, because there was enough rainfall to harvest a good harvest. In Poland, wheat prices were below the average price in the European market, but with the advent of Ukrainian grain, “local farmers were left out of work,” the newspaper article says.

Similar problems have affected agricultural producers in Romania and Bulgaria, which are major exporters of wheat and corn in Europe. Bulgarian farmers took to the streets with mass protests, exacerbating the already difficult political situation in the country, the article emphasizes. Also, the level of discontent is brewing in France, where producers are faced with the emergence of huge volumes of chicken meat.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin repeatedly stressed that Western countries send grain to themselves, although they promised to deliver it to the poorest and most needy countries. Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya said that Russia could withdraw from the grain deal if Moscow is not satisfied with the sale of Russian exports. Russia is ready to sell almost a third of its grain harvest. UN Secretary-General António Guterres has warned of the threat of world hunger in 2023.
