US Plan für höhere Getreideexporte aus Ukraine
June 15, 2022 -
US arbeiten einen Plan aus, wie man temporäre Silos entlang der Westgrenze der Ukraine bauen kann, um mehr als 20 Millionen Tonnen Getreide mit der Eisenbahn für die zunehmende Nahrungsmittelkrise der Welt zur Verfügung stellen zu können.
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.
