Ukraine and Russia signed a deal to allow exports of Ukrainian grain to restart. This should ease a world shortage of wheat. Millions of people are at risk of hunger. The invasion of Ukraine resulted in a rise in food prices. Tons of grain are sitting at Ukrainian ports. The grain deal could cut food prices. Russia's Defence Minister and Ukraine's Infrastructure Minister signed the deal at a ceremony in Istanbul. Turkey's President Erdogan helped broker it.

The deal took two months to negotiate and will last for 120 days. Ukraine said any Russian provocation would endanger the deal. This already happened after Russian forces attacked the port of Odesa within 24 hours of the deal. Russia said the deal might mean the export of Russian agricultural products and fertiliser. The US said more exports were needed, "to prevent the world's most vulnerable from sliding into deeper food insecurity and malnutrition.
