The international community should help secure safe passage for food export vessels in a corridor out of the port city of Odesa to help Ukraine and avoid world hunger, reported Reuters, citing a BBC quote from Ukrainian First Deputy Prime Minister Yulia Svyrydenko on Monday.

"It would take us 5, 6, 7 years to export all these agricultural yields by [rail/road]. So right now it’s extremely important for us to unblock the seaports," the BBC quoted her as saying in an interview at the World Economic Forum.

"We need a guarantee from partners, of course it’s a defence guarantee, a security guarantee."
