Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, issued a warning at the weekend that the war with Russia might halve Ukraine's harvest. Even so, Zelensky sounded a confident note, arguing that alternative ways were being found for grains to be delivered. John Rich, the Australian chairman of MHP, Ukraine's biggest agricultural produce company, was much more cautious. Rich also contradicted remarks from Lloyd's of London's boss during the previous week that the insurance market would underwrite the dangerous sea transit of millions of tonnes of grain through mine-laden waters.
