Ukraine grain exports at 3.4 mln T, half last year's figure- ministry
KYIV, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Ukraine's total grain exports for the 2022/23 harvest stood at 3.41 million tonnes on Aug. 26, just under half of the volume at the same time of last year's harvest, according to data from Ukraine's agriculture ministry.
Ukraine's exports have been severely disrupted by Russia's invasion, which has blocked Ukraine's access to the Black Sea, its traditional primary export route.
According to the agriculture ministry, 2.18 million tonnes of corn and 937,000 tonnes of wheat have been exported this harvest season.
This represents a more than threefold decrease in wheat exports from the equivalent period last season, but is also a near-doubling of corn exports. (Reporting by Max Hunder; editing by David Evans)
