الولايات المتحدة تخطط لزيادة صادرات الحبوب من أوكرانيا

June 15, 2022 - تعمل الولايات المتحدة على خطة لبناء صوامع موقتة على طول حدود أوكرانيا في محاولة لتصدير أكثر من 20 مليون طن من الحبوب بالسكك الحديدية ومعالجة أزمة الغذاء العالمية المتزايدة.

Since the Russian invasion and blockade of Ukrainian Black Sea ports, grain shipments have stalled. Ukraine says it faces a shortage of silos for a new crop, according to Reuters.

U.S. President Joe Biden said Washington was developing a plan to get grain out by rail, but noted Ukrainian track gauges were different from those in Europe, so the grain has to be transferred to different trains at the border, Reuters said.

“So we're going to build silos, temporary silos, on the borders of Ukraine, including in Poland,” Biden said.

Grain could be transferred from Ukrainian railway cars into the new silos, and then onto European freight cars to “get it out to the ocean and get it across the world,” he said, adding the plan was taking time.
