According to the U.S. administration, this will simplify its loading after the restoration of ground transport traffic.
The United States is considering the possibility of transferring containers for temporary storage of grain to Ukraine until its export by land transport is established. This was reported by CNN, citing sources in the U.S administration.
According to them, the United States expects to “save more than 20 million tons of grain” by supplying Ukraine with “bags or boxes” for its temporary storage. It is assumed that in the future this will simplify the loading of grain on “trains or trucks when the ground tracks are installed” for its export.
Earlier on Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken at a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the United States authorities are considering possible routes for the export of grain and other products from Ukraine to world markets against the backdrop of the global food crisis. At the same time, he claimed that the “Russian blockade” prevents about 85 ships “filled with grain” from leaving the port of Odessa.
