Al Jazeera said that the recent war situation in eastern Ukraine was quite fierce when Russia deployed a large amount of artillery to attack many cities and villages under the control of the Kiev government.

This tactic made the Ukrainian army difficult, and forced President Volodymyr Zelensky and Kiev leaders to ask Western countries for more heavy weapons, including multiple rocket launchers, to counter deal with Russian artillery.

Mr. Zelensky warns of famine

“The world is on the verge of a terrible food crisis, when Ukraine – a country that plays a stable role in the world market, is unable to export a large amount of wheat, corn, oil and many other goods. other products. Millions of people could starve, if Russia’s blockade of the Black Sea continues,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told Business Standard today (June 9).

“While we are doing everything we can to protect our freedom, someone is destroying it. They are using hunger to ‘price’ the whole world,” Zelensky added.

According to Al Jazeera, this is not the first time Zelensky has called on the international community to join hands to force Russia to lift the blockade of Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea. Earlier, on June 6, Zelensky had a discussion with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on this issue.

“We need a safe corridor, so that the fleet of many countries can guarantee the export of grain. We have discussed it with British and Turkish authorities. The Turkish government is trying to provide us with guarantees,” Zelensky was quoted as saying at the time by

“The ports remain a priority for Ukraine’s grain exports. With the ports, we can export grain very quickly. If we currently have about 22-25 million tons of grain that cannot be exported, by autumn this number could be up to 75 million tons. That’s why we can’t export food without ports,” Zelensky added.

Ukraine says nearly 10,000 people are trapped in Severodonetsk

“Ukrainian armed forces still control the industrial zone and many areas surrounding the city of Severodonetsk. The situation is very difficult right now but it is still under control,” Severodonetsk Mayor Oleksandr Stryuk told Al Jazeera news agency.

“The defenses remained strong despite the incessant Russian artillery fire, but this also made it impossible to evacuate civilians from the city. About 10,000 civilians are still trapped inside the city,” Stryuk added.

Currently, Al Jazeera and many other news agencies have not been able to verify Stryuk’s statements.
