The G7 stands strong together.

We're backing President Zelenskyy and Ukraine with the strategic resolve to turn the tide in this fight against Putin's barbarism.

We must end Putin's stranglehold on grain which drives up global food prices, deprives Ukraine of revenue and puts millions at risk of starvation.

We will work with partners to end Russia's grain blockade and with Ukraine to repair vital railways.

Russia claims Ukrainian grain has "nothing to do with the global food crisis".

🇺🇦 wheat/barley was 12% of global exports until Russia’s blockade left 20m tonnes stuck in storage.

Russia must end the war and allow Ukrainian farmers to help feed the world.
