“We have already begun the second sowing campaign during the war. The first 16,000 hectares of grain and leguminous crops have been sown,” Shmygal said.

The Prime Minister noted that Ukraine and Poland have also simplified the border crossing for agricultural products and are working to expand the grain initiative and port facilities on the Danube.

The government has also allocated UAH 5 million from the state budget reserve fund to a pilot project to restore energy infrastructure in line with wartime security standards, the concrete results of which are expected in the near future.
