The Group of Leading Democratic Industrialized Nations (G7) has called on Russia to end the blockade on Ukrainian grain exports. This could only be a first step, according to a statement passed at a meeting of G7 foreign ministers near Weissenhäuser Strand in Schleswig-Holstein on Saturday. Russia’s unprovoked war in Ukraine has worsened the global economic outlook with soaring food, fuel and energy prices. Around 43 million people are just one step away from starvation.

There is a risk of food insecurity and malnutrition. This is having devastating consequences for some of the most vulnerable, the statement said. Rising costs would also make it harder for aid organizations to provide aid to those most in need. Together with international partners, it must be ensured that such a situation can never arise again.
