The United States has provided $ 670 million (approximately $ 634 million) in international food aid since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This amount comes from the budgets of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), both companies said.

“Russia’s unprovoked war against Ukraine, another major agricultural exporter, is increasing food and energy costs for people around the world,” said U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Wilsock. Russia and Ukraine together account for a quarter of global wheat exports.

The money will go to food operations in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Yemen.

The United States on Wednesday announced more than $ 200 million (approximately மில்லியன் 190 million) in aid to the Horn of Africa, which includes Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia. The foreign ministry said the money would help meet humanitarian needs there as a result of the drought and regional conflicts.
