putin-threatens-to-walk-away-from-ukraine-grain-deal

Russian President Vladimir Putin renewed his threats to sink an international agreement to unblock Ukraine’s vital grain exports through the Black Sea, saying not enough grain was going to the world’s poor.

Mr. Putin has made the false claim before, raising doubts about the long-term survival of the United Nations-brokered pact, agreed to earlier this year to address a global hunger crisis. Some 28% of the more than three million tons of grain shipped under the agreement has gone to lower income countries, including Egypt, India and Iran, among others. The increased supplies have also helped bring down prices across the board, easing the pressure on some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.
