Ukraine exported up to 6 million tonnes of grain a month before Russia launched its invasion on February 24, which Moscow itself describes as a ‘special military operation’.

Volumes have since fallen to about 1.7 million tonnes as Ukraine, which used to export most of its products through ports, has been forced to transport grain by train across its western border or by river.
