The Ukrainian embassy in Cairo said that Russia is preventing the movement of four ships loaded with wheat and corn in Ukrainian ports from sailing to Egypt.
In a post on its official Facebook page, the embassy said: “Russia prevents the movement of four ships loaded with wheat and corn in Ukrainian ports.
The ship “Riva Wind” is ready to transport 27,000 tons of corn to Egypt, enough to feed more than one million people for a month.
“Russia has planted mines in the Black Sea, which prevented this ship from sailing to Egypt from the port of Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky in Ukraine,” said the statement.
It posted a link for those wishing to track the live location of the “Riva Wind”.
The embassy said that the Ukrainian farmers are fighting the battle for the Ukrainian crops, despite the mines and the constant bombing of fields and orchards carried out by the Russian forces, as well as preventing access to seeds, fertilizers and fuel.
Ukraine provides food for about 400 million people around the world, as Ukrainian farmers, and the Ukrainian armed forces, defend food security not only in Ukraine, but in the whole world.
