The leaders of Ukraine and the Netherlands discussed the protection of the grain corridor
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte discussed the protection of grain export corridors in the Black Sea.
Due to constant Russian attacks, the new grain corridor needs additional protection, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said. First of all, it is about insurance of ships, their escort by ships of third countries and anti-aircraft defense of ports.
“The world recognizes the global role of Ukraine as a guarantor of food security. And it clearly supports that we should preserve and strengthen this meaning of ours. The social stability of many countries directly depends on Ukrainian strength,” the President of Ukraine emphasized.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy also noted the importance of resuming the export of other products.
“We need the economy to live. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to export other products at our ports today. We would like to talk about metallurgy and energy, but at the moment we do not have such an opportunity,” said the president.
