European Union Considers Helping Transport Grain out of Ukraine

The European Union will look at helping fund the costly transportation of grain out of Ukraine after Russia halted a deal that allowed Black Sea exports vital to global food security.

The EU’s Agriculture Commissioner says they will investigate transport funding after a meeting of agriculture officials in Brussels.

The thorny issue of how to get grain out of Ukraine and help farmers in the country’s direct EU neighbors compete with a glut of cheap grain is threatening to shake the 27-nation bloc’s unity in supporting Kyiv as it battles Russia’s invasion.

Europe’s economic powerhouse, Germany, opposes moves to use EU money to support the transport sector.
