Chairman of the African Union and President of Senegal Macky Sall announced he will visit Ukraine to put pressure on Russia and Ukraine to resolve a looming food crisis.
On June 3, Sall met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, where they discussed rising food prices caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The food crisis is being caused by Russia blocking Ukrainian grain exports. While there are currently no bans against Russian agricultural exports, sanctions have made it difficult for Russian products to make their way to world markets, and to replace Ukrainian grain.
The date of Sall's visit has not been announced.
