Foreign media reported on April 8, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst told the media the other day that the whole world is facing impending famine. Joni Ernst believes that due to the Russian-Ukrainian war and the shortage of fertilizers and seeds after going into planting season, grain production in Ukraine will decrease by 40 to 45 percent this year.
Ukraine and Russia are the world’s major exporters of wheat and corn. Ukraine’s food exports support about 400 million people in the world. The food supply crisis brought by the Russian-Ukrainian war will trigger a severe global food shortage As the Russian-Ukrainian war continued, more and more people began to pay attention to the food crisis that the war might cause.
U.S. President Joe Biden recently admitted that food shortages in the U.S. will also become a reality. U.S. Senator Cory Booker warned that the food crisis will cause tens of millions of people around the world to starve to death. Officials of the World Food Program also said that the world’s food supply is becoming stretched and stretched, and it is estimated that at least 285 million people are currently facing starvation in the world.
