(Worthy News) – Foreign ministers and representatives from the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations (G7) gathered on Germany’s Baltic coast on May 12 for a three-day meeting dominated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its wider impact, including on food and energy supplies.
German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said in the Baltic Sea resort of Weissenhaus, northeast of Hamburg, that the effects of the 11-week-old Ukrainian war on grain supplies have already made it a “global crisis.”
Ukraine is a major agricultural exporter, including of wheat and other grains.
Russia has blockaded Black Sea and other trade routes in and out of its much smaller post-Soviet neighbor in the conflict, in addition to causing the death of thousands and widespread destruction through a military campaign widely employing massive aerial bombardment.
