Biden recalled that about 20 million tons of grain remain blocked in Ukraine. According to the American president, Washington is working closely with European partners on its removal.
Biden also noted that Ukraine's railway gauge is different from EU standards, which makes it difficult to take a large amount of cargo directly to the EU. “So we will build temporary granaries on the borders of Ukraine, including in Poland, so that we can reload grain from wagons to these warehouses and then to wagons in Europe, take it to the ocean and deliver it around the world,” — he concluded.
