RUSSIAN TARGETING FARM EQUIPMENT IN UKRAINE, RESTRICTING PLANTING OPERATIONS
Agri-Pulse reports:

Ukraine is doing its best to keep its farms operational, but the Russian invasion is making that difficult, a Ukrainian representative has told the World Trade Organization's Agriculture Committee.

The Russian military is making it even harder by targeting Ukrainian farm equipment and machinery, the Ukrainian representative said. Geneva trade officials recounted Ukrainian's discussions with the committee this week.

According to them, Ukrainian officials said "its farmers are doing their best not to miss the growing season while putting their lives at risk. However, should the current circumstances not improve, Ukraine would be forced to restrict exports to ensure national food security."

You should also know: The House on Thursday voted 424-8 to suspend normal trade relations with Russia and Belarus, allowing President Biden to raise tariffs on Russian goods. The bill also requires the U.S. Trade Representative to push for the suspension of Russian involvement in the WTO.
