Keeping Ukrainian goods moving

Since Russia's unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine and the blockade of Ukrainian seaports, Ukraine has been unable to export its produce to destinations around the world via the usual routes. This situation threatens global food security; alternative routes are needed urgently.

On 12 May, the European Commission presented its Solidarity Lanes Action Plan to help Ukraine export its agricultural produce, as part of the EU's solidarity response with Ukraine. 

Since August, the Black Sea Grain Initiative brokered by the UN, has enabled additional grain exports via maritime routes.

Latest figures

According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Agriculture, Ukrainian exports of cereals, oilseeds and related products reached 4.3 million tonnes in August, confirming an upward trend after 2.8 Mt in July, 2.5 Mt in June, 2 Mt in May and 1.3 Mt in April. 

Business Matchmaking Platform

To help finding pragmatic solutions to the export of agricultural produce from Ukraine, the Commission launched a business matchmaking platform bringing together businesses in the EU and Ukraine.
