Many parts of the world can avoid starvation if the economic blockades on Russia, Venezuela, Iran and other emerging nations are lifted and food from Russia and Ukraine returns to the markets, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said in a video message to the participants of the food security event. He warned that humanity could face famine in many regions this year, and the situation threatens to become even worse next year.

According to Guterres, this catastrophe can be avoided if we act together and develop ‘bold and coordinated political measures. This means the immediate reintegration of Ukrainian food production, as well as Russian food and fertilizer production, into world markets and maintaining open international trade.’

In turn, Secretary General of the UN Conference on Trade and Development Rebeca Greenspan urged not to introduce unnecessary restrictions and keep trade open. According to him, the reintegration of Russian and Ukrainian food, as well as fertilizers from Russia into world markets, is a key recommendation to combat the global crisis.

As Reuters reported last week, citing unnamed European officials, the European Commission is going to adjust sanctions against Russia in order to eliminate the possibility of hindering food exports.

The West has repeatedly accused Russia of opposing the supply of Ukrainian grain to world markets, Moscow categorically rejected this. At the same time, the Kyiv authorities themselves created many obstacles to the export of grain for export: in addition to setting fire to grain in the Mariupol port, Ukrainian troops mined some sections of the Black Sea, which did not allow grain to be transported by ships.

According to a RIA Novosti source familiar with the situation, a preliminary meeting of representatives of Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN on the ‘grain issue’ may take place on July 20-21. According to the interlocutor of the agency, there are no significant obstacles to signing an agreement on the withdrawal of ships with grain in the Black Sea, only technical details remain.
