New agreement on grain exports from Ukraine


Shortages in flour could be resolved after an agreement was reached at a UN meeting in Turkey between Ukraine and Russia, reports NOS.

Some 20 million tonnes of grain has been stuck in major grower Ukraine due to the Russian war.

The shortage has been seen on shelves in the Netherlands, with periods of a lack of flour and limits on purchases.

The new agreement would allow Ukraine to export its grain via the Black Sea. Turkey has pledged to search the ships, with the UN, to avoid weapons being transported.
