    Somali Magazine September 12, 2023-According to UN Human Rights Chief Volker Türk, Russia’s withdrawal from the Black Sea Grain Initiative and Russian attacks on Ukrainian grain facilities have driven up food costs in many impoverished nations to “sky high” levels.

    Türk told the Human Rights Council in Geneva that rising food prices have put “the right to food far out of reach for many people.”

    He especially mentioned Somalia, stating that the country has long relied on wheat from Ukraine and Russia and that the failure of the grain trade “was particularly damaging.”

    Ukrainian grain could now be shipped over the Black Sea according to the Black Sea Grain Initiative. Russia pulled out of the agreement in July, claiming that a parallel agreement to remove barriers to Russian food and fertiliser exports had not been honoured.

    According to Ukraine’s military intelligence, Ukrainian soldiers reclaimed control of numerous offshore gas and oil drilling sites in Crimea on Monday.

    According to Telegram, Ukrainian special forces on boats damaged a Russian Su-30 fighter plane and grabbed helicopter ammo and radar equipment.

    According to the military, Russia has held the platforms since 2015 and has been using them for military objectives.

    The Associated Press, Agence France-Presse, and Reuters contributed to this report.
