Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said on Tuesday it may soon be possible for cereal exports to resume from Ukraine, alleviating shortages that are particularly affecting poor countries. Speaking at the end of a summit of Group of Seven leaders in Germany, Draghi said it was not necessary for mines to be fully cleared from Ukraine's ports and that "there are corridors" in place to potentially allow cargo ships to operate.

A final green light from the Kremlin was required for exports to resume, and this "should come soon," Draghi told reporters.
