Canada will take part in the transportation of Ukrainian grain
The blockade of Russia prevents Ukraine from exporting agricultural products, posing a threat of malnutrition and hunger for millions of people around the world.
Canada is ready to help Ukraine in the transportation of grain by providing its ships. This was stated by Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly, CTV reports .
Joly said that the government of her country is ready to send its ships to the ports of Europe so that Ukrainian grain "can be delivered to those who need it."
She also added that the civilized world needs to do everything to ensure that Ukraine resumes grain exports.
Otherwise, mass starvation may begin in the world,” the diplomat said.
It is worth noting that all seaports of Ukraine are blocked by Russian troops. For this reason, it is impossible to export Ukrainian grain by sea.
