Blunt Talks About Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine Impacting Global Food Supply

(MISSOURINET) –  Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had wide-ranging impacts on the world as a whole and now threatens global food security.

Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt says the full impact of the war on food supply is just now beginning to emerge. . .

Ukraine produces a large portion of the food stuffs for Europe and Africa.

In addition to wheat, Ukraine produces more than 20-percent of the world’s corn.

It produces nearly all the sunflower oil.

Russia’s war on Ukraine has kept Ukrainian farmers out of the field and has blocked the export of crops in the grain bins.
