"The only reason for the restrictions on Ukrainian food exports is Russia's aggression against our country and the illegal blockade of Ukrainian seaports. Russia threatens the world food security by its criminal activities," said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, APA reports.

"Despite the difficult conditions, Ukraine is making every effort to fulfill its contractual obligations and supply food to global consumers, especially via EU infrastructure," said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba.

The Minister noted that Ukraine has already reached an agreement with EU countries to develop alternative ways to bring Ukraine's food exports to global markets.

"Ukraine, the EU, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom cooperate to prevent the global food crisis caused by Russia's aggression and blockade. It is a difficult task, but we are working on it," he said.
