Ukraine offers to create organization of food exporting countries to combat hunger




Ukraine offers to create an organization of food exporting countries to combat hunger, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

“Any reaction to the mass famine is overdue. The famine should be stopped preventively, when it is not here yet. Today, the world does not have such an instrument. We offer to create an organization of responsible and democratic food exporting countries, who can act in respect to the human rights and global trade rules”, – V. Zelenskyy said.

He is sure that no matter what the turning points in history, humanity must have insurance against hunger.

“Ukraine is ready to provide platform for such organization that is definitely needed”, – the President noted.

V. Zelenskyy called the global community to help Ukraine to unblock its ports to avoid the world food crisis.

“You should know that Russian soldiers steal Ukrainian grain everyday. After that, the grain is shipped to some countries. There should be quick response. If you understand where the grain comes from, how can you buy it illegally just because it is cheap”, – he said.
