Germany would support Ukraine in finding alternative paths to export its grain, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said on Wednesday.
As an alternative to sending grain to markets via the Black Sea, Baerbock suggested the European Union create solidarity lanes "by barge, rail or road."
Baerbock in her tweet, accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of robbing the world of any hope for Ukrainian grain, saying each of his bombs also hit the poorest in the world.
Ukrainian grain feeds 400 million people worldwide, according to World Food Program figures. Russia on Monday rejected an extension of the grain deal, allowing Ukrainian grain exports through the Black Sea.
