The international supply of grain and other agricultural products was undermined following the introduction of western sanctions against Russia and the start of the special military operation in Ukraine. In short, shipments from the world's two key suppliers – Russia and Ukraine – were disrupted.
The food shortages that countries started to experience by summer 2022 prompted UN-led fears that global famine might erupt this year. The West and Ukraine accused Moscow of causing the disruption, but the Kremlin pointed out that the two main factors impeding shipments from the countries were Ukraine's mining of its shores and western sanctions.
