Message Export of Ukrainian grain does not affect world prices

Like, the importance of Ukrainian grain for the world is exaggerated. The share of Ukraine's grain exports in world consumption is insignificant, and this cannot seriously affect prices. Such messages are spread by Russian propaganda.

The fact-checkers of EU vs Disinfo drew attention to the spread of the message. In fact, Ukraine is one of the largest grain producers in the world. In fact, Ukraine accounts for 10% of the world wheat market, 15% of the corn market and 13% of the barley market. Ukraine is also the main producer of sunflower oil.

Suspension of grain deliveries as a result of Russia's blockade of Ukrainian ports led to a rapid increase in grain prices. By mid-May, export prices for wheat and corn reached unprecedented heights. Prices fell after the signing of a grain agreement between Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and the UN and the unblocking of the Black Sea for Ukrainian grain exports.
