Ukraine suspends exports of meat, grains, other staples

Ukraine halts exports of some food products amid growing shortages of staples.

The Ukrainian governments says it suspended exports of “meat, rye, oats, buckwheat, sugar, millet and salt,” according to CNN.

Some exports, including wheat, corn, poultry, eggs and oil will only be allowed with permission from the Economy Ministry.

Grocery stores are increasingly running out of supplies as transportation becomes more difficult. Russia has increasingly attacked residential areas and civilian infrastructure in recent days.

Ukraine is a major world exporter of grains and other products, which some countries depend on.
