US Congressman McGovern calls for agricultural export corridors from Ukraine.

It is necessary to help the Ukrainians establish a humanitarian corridor that will allow them to ship food by sea to other countries.

The relevant statement was made by Chair of the House Rules Committee, Member of the US Congressional Delegation to Ukraine Jim McGovern at a briefing in Rzeszów, Poland, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We also will continue to fund our international relief organizations like the UN World Food Programme, and others. And we must find a way to help the Ukrainians establish a humanitarian corridor that will allow them to ship food by sea, to help the poorest people in the world, so they don’t go hungry,” McGovern said.

In his words, Putin’s brutal war is no longer only a war against the people of Ukraine. It is also a war against the world’s most vulnerable. Ukraine is basically the breadbasket of the world that provides wheat, maize, sunflower oil and many other things to countries all around the world, especially in Africa and in the Middle East. It provides important food to relief organizations, such as the UN World Food Programme.

“And yet this war, Putin’s war, is exacerbating hunger all around the world. His deliberate targeting of food supplies has resulted in great pain inside Ukraine and around the world. Food prices have risen, energy prices have risen. And that in turn means that hunger is on the rise. What kind of person does that?” McGovern noted.

According to McGovern, the US Congressional Delegation also talked with President Zelensky about the importance of providing assistance directly to Ukraine, so that he has the ability and the flexibility to provide what is necessary to people in need: internally displaced persons, those who are staying in the conflict areas, families in Ukraine and Poland.
