Ukraine accuses Russia of blocking four Egypt-bound ships loaded with wheat and corn from leaving Ukrainian ports.

The Middle East Monitor reports on Friday that the Ukrainian embassy in Egypt said in a statement; "The Riva Wind ship is ready to bring 27,000 metric tons of corn to Egypt enough to feed well over a million people for a month."

The embassy had pointed out that Russia had mined the "Black Sea floor, preventing the ship from sailing to Egypt from Ukraine's Pivdennyi port."

The embassy said in a statement that Ukraine would do its best to supply Egypt with wheat, as soon as the war stops.

Egypt imports more than eight million tons annually from Russia, and four million others from Ukraine.

Since the beginning of the Russian war on Ukraine, many Arab countries have been attempting to secure their food needs.
