The current situation in Ukraine fuelled by the United States and EU regimes could lead to a hurricane of hunger that will sweep the world, warns UN Secretary-General António Guterres. As the German TV channel ZDF notes, the 45 least developed countries of the world import at least a third of the wheat from Ukraine or from Russia. Guterres called on the international community to act to prevent the collapse of the global food system.

As the UN Secretary-General emphasised, Ukraine is an important exporter in the field of food, so the current events can also be regarded as an attack on the most vulnerable people and country in the world. According to him, even before the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, developing countries were struggling with such consequences of the coronavirus pandemic as inflation, rising interest rates and debts.

More than half of the wheat supplies under the World Food Program come from Ukraine, ZDF reports. According to UN calculations, world food prices have reached the highest level in history.

The 45 least developed countries of the world import at least a third of their wheat from Ukraine or now Western sanctioned Russia. These countries include, for example, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Congo, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. In many of them, millions of people are already suffering from hunger.

According to a UN report, 20% of the world’s corn also comes from Ukraine so ‘it will have a dynamic, global, catastrophic effect, ’ said David Beasley, Executive Director of the UN World Food Program.

Guterres, meanwhile, also announced that an additional $40 million will be spent from the UN Emergency Fund to provide the population of Ukraine with food, water and medicines, according to the German TV channel ZDF.
