Paris, 19 July 2023 (TDI): France has once again expressed condemnations after another series of airstrikes by Russia in the port city of Odesa.

The strikes, intentionally aimed at civilian infrastructure, including vital grain silos, are considered nothing less than war crimes by France.

The French government has vehemently criticized Russia for endangering global food security by calling into question the Black Sea Grain Initiative.

France, in solidarity with the nations most affected by Russia’s aggression, has pledged to continue providing food aid to those vulnerable to food insecurity caused by the ongoing conflict.
