The President's Office notes that Ukraine needs the American MLRS multiple launch rocket system, including for unblocking the Black Sea.

Source: Head of the Office of the President Andrii Yermak in Telegram; his adviser Mykhailo Podoliak on Twitter.

Yermak's Quote: "We need to get high-precision missiles, drones, anti-aircraft defence systems and ammunition. We are still waiting for MLRS."

Podoliak's Quote: "1.6 billion people may become malnourished due to lack of food. Hundreds of millions will fall below the poverty line due to rising prices.

The Economist predicts the consequences of Russian aggression and invites the world to agree with Ukraine and Russia on international food convoys in the Black Sea.

Bargain with a country that has taken hundreds of millions of people hostage? We have a better idea: the world should agree on the transfer of MLRS systems and other necessary heavy weapons to Ukraine to unlock the Black Sea. Then we'll do everything ourselves."

Recall: The UN warned that the closure of ports in the Black Sea could provoke a global food disaster, which will lead to famine, mass migration and political instability in the world.
