UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said he is deeply concerned about hunger becoming widespread as the war in Ukraine threatens food security in different parts of the world. Al Jazeera reports that the Russian invasion has disrupted shipping in the Black Sea, a major route for grains and other commodities, throttling exports from both Ukraine and Russia and sending global prices for grains, cooking oils, fuel, and fertiliser soaring. Speaking at an earlier event, Guterres said the time would come when there are peace negotiations over Ukraine, but he did not see that time in the immediate future.
