Reuters reveals Boris Johnson signals UK’s willingness to demine, help export grain from Ukraine

Reuters was first to report that Prime Minister Boris Johnson said last Thursday that Britain was willing to assist with demining operations off Ukraine’s southern coast and was considering offering insurance to ships to move millions of tonnes of grain stuck in the country. Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine and blockade of its Black Sea ports has prevented the country, traditionally one of the world’s top food producers, from exporting much of the more than 20 million tonnes of grain stored in its silos.
