UKRAINE REPRESENTATIVE REPORTS RUSSIA IS TARGETING AGRICULTURE INFRASTRUCTURE
Agri-Pulse reports:

Ukraine alleges that Russia's military is doing long term and costly damage to the country's agricultural sector.

Chemicals cast off by Russia's military are polluting the soil while bombs are destroying billions of dollars of ag storage, processing facilities, tractors and other machinery - not to mention livestock and crops - a Ukrainian representative told members of the World Trade Organization's agriculture committee this week, according to a Geneva trade official.

Some $6.4 billion worth of Ukrainian ag infrastructure and resources has been destroyed so far, the Ukraine representative said.

Russian WTO representatives at the session raised repeated objections, complaining that the WTO was not the proper venue for such concerns, the Geneva official said.
