Time to discuss Ukraine food exports with Russia - EC president

24 May 2022

Discussions necessary to prevent global food crisis

Europe needs to seek talks with Russia on possibilities of reviving the exports of wheat and other food supplies out of Ukraine in order to prevent a global food crisis, reported Reuters, citing European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Tuesday.

"It can't be in Russia's interests that because of Russia people are dying of hunger in the world," von der Leyen said in an interview with Reuters at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

"Therefore I think we should first of all look at the dialogue with Russia, whether there is not an agreement that this wheat gets out of Ukraine."
