On July 17 the Russian government announced that it was pulling out of a deal to facilitate the export of millions of tons of grain from Ukrainian ports. The arrangement had been in place since July 2022. The Kremlin’s move immediately sparked concern, particularly in food insecure countries. The Kenyan government was quick to denounce the withdrawal as a “stab in the back” for drought-hit nations in the Horn of Africa. U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres said that Russia’s withdrawal “will strike a blow to people in need everywhere.”
