  • Global food security and the impact of Russia’s invasion are high on the agenda of the G7 agriculture ministers meeting on Friday and Saturday (13-14 May).
  • A major concern Solskyj is expected to discuss with the G7 ministers is how to support Ukraine logistically to help export grain.
  • Speaking during the meeting, Qu Dongyu, director-general of the United Nations’ agriculture and food association (FAO), warned that even before the start of the Russian attack, around 193 million people worldwide were “acutely food insecure and in need of urgent assistance”.
