“A blow not only to Ukraine”: Zelensky warned the world about the threat of famine due to Russia blocking ports

Zelensky said that without Ukrainian agricultural exports, dozens of countries in different regions of the world are already on the verge of food shortages.

President Charles Michel visited Odessa on May 9 and made sure that the Russian Federation blocked the export of food important to the whole world.

Vladimir Zelensky spoke about this in his video message on the evening of May 9.

“Charles Michel saw with his own eyes what a blocked sea means. For the first time in decades and decades, there is no ordinary merchant fleet traffic in Odessa, there is no ordinary port work,” the head of state said.

Zelensky suggested that such a situation in Odessa, probably, has not been since the Second World War.

“Ordinary life associated with the sea is blocked by Russia. It is Russia. And this is a blow not only to Ukraine,” he said.

The President of Ukraine stressed that without our agricultural exports, dozens of countries in different regions of the world are already on the verge of food shortages. And over time, the situation can become even worse.

“Politicians are already discussing what the consequences of the price crisis and famine in African countries, Asian countries can be. This is a direct consequence of Russian aggression, which can only be overcome together – by all Europeans, by the entire free world. Can be overcome because of pressure on Russia, from – for effectively forcing Russia to stop this shameful war,” he summed up.

Recall, the head of the European Council, Charles Michel, arrived in Odessa on May 9 to celebrate Europe Day. There he met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmihal.

Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen for her work in creating a Trust Fund for the Reconstruction of Ukraine after the war.
