LVIV, Ukraine (Reuters) – Ukraine may not produce enough crops to export if this year’s sowing campaigns are disrupted by Russia’s invasion, presidential adviser Oleh Ustenko said in a televised interview on Saturday.

“Ukraine has enough grain and food reserves to survive for a year, but if the war continues … (Ukraine) will not be able to export grain to the world, and there will be problems,” he said, adding that Ukraine is the world’s fifth-largest wheat exporter.
