Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine has changed the world's food supply chains

the Black Sea Grain Initiative
“Grain from Ukraine”
Within the initiative, Ukraine distributed grain free of charge to countries in need with the support of 34 donor countries.
On June 17, Russia announced its withdrawal from the Black Sea Grain Initiative. The deal, created almost a year prior, has been crucial in stabilizing the global food supply and decreasing prices.
For months prior, Russia had been sabotaging the Initiative by delaying vessel inspections. Since January 2023, merely half of the inspections from the agreed plan have been conducted each month. And since April 29, 2023, Pivdennyi seaport, included in the deal, had been fully blocked by Russia again.
And now, with the complete halt of the deal, Russia is trying to force compliance with its demands by threatening millions of people worldwide with food shortages.
