Since the beginning of the War, Ukraine and Russia have agreed to let grain shipments travel through their shared body of water, The Back Sea. Yesterday President Putin failed to renew the deal, immediately halting all grain trade from Ukraine.

This aggressive political move will hurt the rest of the world. Still, most importantly, Ukrainian grain is sent to some of the most food-insecure countries, including Ethiopia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Kenya and Djibouti.

It is a cruel move from the Russians that may turn neutral parties into Ukrainian allies.
