Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal reported this during a government meeting.

According to the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, this year's harvest will be over 79 million tonnes, which is 10% more than last year. As of 3 October, almost 42 million tonnes of grains and oil seeds have already been harvested.

According to Shmyhal, the good harvest is the result not only of favourable weather but also of consistent support for farmers, which means that Ukraine will retain its strategic importance as a guarantor of global food security.

"About 25% of the harvested grain is enough for our domestic needs, while the rest needs to be exported. Because these are resources for farmers, foreign exchange earnings for the state, and food for starving countries," the Prime Minister stressed.

In particular, Denys Shmyhal noted that bridges should be built on the western border now, not walls.

"We need wide transit routes for food exports. This is important for the sustainability of our economy. It is significant for the world, because it is global food security," said Shmyhal.

According to the Prime Minister, Ukraine is counting on the effectiveness of the proposed mechanism for verification and control of Ukrainian agricultural exports, on transit routes of solidarity from the EU, on expanding the capacity of the Danube ports and on new grain corridors.

  • According to Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine intends to launch an additional overland rail corridor for grain exports in the near future. The minister did not provide details on the route of the new railway corridor.
