Mykola Solsky: Blocking the “grain corridor” will provoke an increase in grain prices in the world

Blocking the “grain corridor” will have negative consequences not only for Ukraine, but it will also affect food security in the world. It may provoke a significant increase in grain prices in the future. The Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, Mykola Solsky, said this on the air of the #UArazom nationwide marathon.
