Millions of tonnes of food from previous harvests in Ukraine still need to be cleared to make room in silos for the next one, reported Reuters, citing the UN coordinator for a grains deal on Saturday.

More than 1 million tonnes of grains and other foods have so far been exported under a grains deal brokered by Turkey and the United Nations.

"The Black Sea Grain Initiative has started creating some space but much more grain needs to shift to make space for the new harvest," said Amir Abdulla, UN Coordinator for the Black Sea Grain Initiative.
