UK urges Russia to unblock Ukrainian ports

The British Foreign Office urged Russia on Friday to "immediately end its blockade of Ukrainian ports which is obstructing the flow of essential goods." Earlier, Moscow linked the reopening of ports to lifting sanctions on Russian exports.

"The Kremlin is making food a weapon in its illegal war. Countries around the world are suffering as a result," the Foreign Office claimed, adding that Ukrainian farmers will "struggle to export or store their harvest" if Black Sea ports remain closed. It also cited a United Nations expert, who said that "hundreds of millions of people globally depend on these supplies."
