UN Food Aid Official Warns Ukraine Supply Chain ‘Falling Apart’

Russia’s war is devastating food supply chains across Ukraine, leaving barren shelves at the grocery stores and warehouses that are still standing, a United Nations hunger official told reporters Friday.

“The country’s food supply chain is falling apart. Movements of goods have slowed down due to insecurity and the reluctance of drivers,” said Jakob Kern, U.N. World Food Program (WFP) emergency coordinator for the Ukraine crisis, according to Reuters.

“Russia and Ukraine represent more than half of the world’s supply of sunflower oil and about 30% of the world’s wheat. Ukraine alone provides more than half of the World Food Program’s wheat supply,” Guterres said. “All of this is hitting the poorest the hardest and planting the seeds for political instability and unrest around the globe.”
