KYIV. May 5 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Prime Ministers of Ukraine and Iceland, Denys Shmyhal and Katrin Jakobsdóttir, discussed the consequences of Russia’s war not only for Ukraine, but also for the whole world.

"Following the energy and migration crises, russia is creating a new threat – a global food crisis. The terrorist country continues to block the Black Sea ports, blocking Ukraine’s export opportunities and creating a global challenge to the entire civilized world," Shmyhal wrote on his Telegram channel.

He stressed the need to continue and intensify the sanctions pressure.

"The world community must be united as never before to put pressure on Russia and force it to stop the blockade of Ukrainian ports. Stop global food terrorism," he said.

In turn, the prime minister of Iceland expressed strong support for Ukraine and noted the importance of continuing to provide humanitarian, financial assistance to the state and the continuation of sanctions pressure against Russia.

On Thursday, the Ukrainian government team is on a working visit to Poland, where the International Donors’ Conference for Ukraine is taking place.
