The G7 countries intend to support the agricultural sector of Ukraine and seek the resumption of the transportation of Ukrainian agricultural exports by sea.

This is stated in statement G7 on global food security, released on the last day of the Group’s summit, Ukrinform reports.

The G7 Heads of State and Government once again called on Russia to stop without any conditions the blockade of Ukrainian Black Sea ports, the destruction of key port and transport infrastructure, grain storage facilities and terminals, as well as the misappropriation of agricultural products and equipment in Ukraine, to stop any activity that impedes Ukrainian production and food exports.

“This can only be assessed as a geopolitically motivated attack on global food security. We will intensify our efforts to help Ukraine continue producing agricultural products ahead of the next harvest season and commit to supporting Ukrainian farmers in gaining access to basic agricultural products and veterinary medicines. We strongly support Ukraine in resuming agricultural exports to world markets, as well as the UN’s desire to open a safe maritime corridor through the Black Sea,” the statement said.

The document also contains intentions to intensify efforts to create alternative routes based on the EU Solidarity Bridge initiative.

In addition, the G7 countries will work with relevant agencies and partners to establish the origin of grain imports in order to identify illegally seized Ukrainian products and deter Russia from continuing its illegal seizure.

The heads of state and government also called on Russia to lift measures that prevent the export of Russian grain and fertilizers.

As reported, First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Taras Vysotsky said that since the beginning of the large-scale invasion, Russia has removed at least 400,000 tons of grain from the occupied Ukrainian territories.
