U.S. to allocate $7.6B to tackle food crisis over next years

The United States, together will allies and partners, will act decisively in response to challenges posed by the global food crisis, which has accelerated after Russia unleashed the war against Ukraine.

That’s according to a statement by the U.S. Department of State, Ukrinform reports.

“The Kremlin's unprovoked war in Ukraine is accelerating the global food security crisis. The United States is taking action and has pledged $2.6 billion in humanitarian food assistance to help alleviate hunger, with an added $5 billion over the next five years,” the statement reads.

It is noted that 193 million people worldwide experienced food insecurity in 2021. By the end of this year, it is estimated that number will increase by 40 billion.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, a first vessel carrying Ukrainian corn via a new route, through the Baltic Sea, has arrived in La Coruna, Spain. The traditional Black Sea routes continue to be blocked as a result of Russian aggression.
