The latest report from the British Ministry of Defense states that the Russian invasion continues to have a devastating impact on Ukraine's agricultural sector and that Ukraine's grain exports will drop by two-thirds.

According to the report, the war has also affected supply chains for seeds and fertilizers.

- The Russian blockade of Odesa prevents food exports and it is unlikely that Ukrainian grain exports in 2022 will be higher than 35 percent compared to last year, the report of the British Ministry of Defense indicates.

It is also stated that after the conquest of Lisichansk, Russia's focus will most likely be on Donetsk.

- The fight for Donbass is fierce and exhausting and it is unlikely that this will change in the coming weeks, said the British Ministry of Defence.
