EUA planea construir silos de grano en fronteras ucranianas

June 15, 2022 - EUA trabaja en un plan para construir silos temporales en las fronteras de Ucrania buscando exportar más de 20 millones de toneladas de grano por ferrocarril y abordar la creciente crisis alimentaria global.

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.
