Ukraine has exported more than 46.9 million tonnes of grain and leguminous crops as of May 30, including 1.06 million tonnes in May.
That’s according to the press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine, referring to figures from the State Customs Service, Ukrinform reports.
Since the beginning of the 2021/2022 marketing year, Ukraine has exported 46.93 million tonnes of grain and leguminous crops as of May 30, including 1.06 million tonnes in May. In particular, Ukraine exported 18.56 million tonnes of wheat (including 42,000 tonnes in May), 5.68 million tonnes of barley (11,000 tonnes). 161,900 tonnes of rye (not shipped in May), and 22.22 million tonnes of corn (1 million tonnes).
According to the report, since the beginning of the marketing year, Ukraine has exported 71,000 tonnes of flour (1.400 tonnes in May), including 69,400 tonnes of wheat flour (1,300 tonnes).
As was reported earlier, Russian invaders have stolen at least half a million tonnes of grain from Ukraine’s temporarily occupied territory and they are looking for ways to sell it illegally. The Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine fears that the Russians may steal a new harvest of winter crops. Ukraine is constantly discussing the issue of exporting its crops to other countries with the UN, the EU, the United Kingdom, the United States, and grain-importing countries.
