Since the beginning of the war, Ukraine has changed the geography of its agricultural exports.

Since the beginning of the full-scale war with Russia, Ukraine has been forced to change the geography of its agricultural exports, as a result of which the European share in January-October 2023 reached 59%, compared to 32% in 2021. This increase in exports to Europe has been forced and is explained by a reduction in supplies to other regions: the share of African exports decreased to 7% from 14%, Asia – to 12% from 19%, Southeast Asia – to 4% from 13%. It is noted that supplies to African and Asian countries during the war became possible only through the grain corridor that was established in cooperation with the UN and Turkey and the current, temporary grain corridor, which is being used for shipments now. The structure Ukrainian agricultural exports in 2023 in terms of the main export positions is similar to last year’s indicators: Grain crops accounted for 39%, 26% – vegetable oils, 4% – meat, 2% – dairy products, eggs, and honey. However, oilseed exports decreased to 12% compared to 16% in 2022.
