In a statement, FAO also called for avoiding a worsening of the disruption of food supply chains in that European nation.

In that sense, it urged to provide urgent assistance to Ukrainian farmers in planting vegetables and potatoes in the spring, besides saving the winter wheat harvest.

With this plan, the statement said, FAO more than doubled the initial request of $50 million, made in the revised Flash Appeal, to help 376,660 small and medium agricultural households, covering nearly one million people between now and December 2022.

According to the director of FAO’s Office of Emergencies and Resilience, Rein Paulsen, the immediate concern is to save the spring planting and avoid disruption of the next winter harvest because that, he said, “could seriously threaten the country’s food security”.
