Ukrainian Farmers Dealing With Landmines

Ukrainian grain farmers in areas now free from Russian occupation are wondering if they should risk their lives to clear explosives before the critical spring planting season. 

They are also dealing with soaring production and transportation costs caused by Russia’s blockade of many Black Sea ports. 

Experts predict losses, a reduction in output and potentially thousands of bankruptcies. 

The head of the U-N Food and Agriculture Organization in Ukraine says a drastic cutback in grain crops could threaten global food security.
