Zelensky: Global food crisis will last as long as Russia’s ‘colonial war’
Ukraine is engaged in “complex negotiations” to release its ports from Russia’s blockade, President Volodymyr Zelensky says, warning the global grain crisis will last as long as Russia’s “colonial war.”
“We are conducting complex multilevel negotiations to unblock our Ukrainian ports. But there is no progress yet. That is why the global food crisis will continue as long as this colonial war continues,” he says in a video address to the African Union.
