For the second night in a row after withdrawing from the Black Sea Grain Initiative, the russian federation is launching massive attacks on the port infrastructure of Odessa and the region. Such actions of a terrorist country once again violate international humanitarian law, threatening millions of people in the world with starvation.
Today, July 19, as a result of shelling, grain and oilseed terminals were damaged, tanks and equipment for loading goods were damaged.
If the grain port infrastructure is destroyed, there will be a serious long-term blow to global food security. This will mean that this logistics channel, even if free navigation is established, will require a long recovery, during which the low-income countries of Africa and Asia will not receive the necessary volume of Ukrainian agro-industrial products, which will only increase the problem of providing food for the citizens of these countries. And russian terror will invariably carry responsibility for the aggravation of the global food crisis.
We appeal to the international community, the leaders of the EU, Asia, Africa and America to increase pressure on the russian federation and its terrorist actions in order to prevent the problem of world hunger and access to food from worsening.
