Ukraine accuses Russian forces of burning wheat fields

Ukraine has accused Russian forces of bombing wheat fields.

In some images published by foreign media, Ukrainian soldiers are seen trying to put out fires to save crops as food supplies are reduced.

The country faces massive food shortages and a Russian naval blockade that prevents it from being able to export profitable agricultural goods.

Nicknamed the 'Europe's bread basket', Ukraine has some of the continent's most fertile lands - and supplies most of the Middle East and Africa with food.
