Countries can buy Ukrainian agricultural products, which then will be transferred to the African countries that need the world’s help to avoid starvation.

More than $180 million have already been collected to implement the “Grain from Ukraine” project, said Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine.
It is one of the most significant Ukrainian humanitarian initiatives at the moment. About 31 countries, the European Union, the United Nations, and the NATO alliance have officially announced their participation.
In particular, the Italian government has allocated €2 million to this project, Antonio Tajani, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy reported.
The Constituent International Summit on Food Security was held. Implementation of the “Grain from Ukraine” project was on the agenda. Its main idea is that every state or international organization participating in the “Grain from Ukraine” project will be able to buy Ukrainian grain for other states and help them avoid hunger. It will also help the Ukrainian economy. The program is already starting to work. As part of the project, the Nord Vind ship left Ukraine on November 15. 27,000 tons of Ukrainian wheat for the residents of Ethiopia are on board. – Andrii Yermak, Head of the Presidential Office
